I miss the days of being invisible.
No one cared, but it was better than this;
this is a different kind of miserable.
Now, never ending gazes of piercing judgment,
that could rip the strongest to shreds, lay upon me.
This is what I wanted; no accident.
I wanted to be larger, stronger,
brighter, shining, glowing.
I didn't want to be the wall flower any longer.
My whole life, I've been on the sidelines
watching and waiting.
I was given the opportunity and should have declined.
I was given the chance.
I want to give it back.

I can so easily realte to this. I took that opportunity, I took a step out of my comfort zone, and realized this isnt what I wanted I just want to be where no one can see me, but it doesnt work the same way going back, its different, you cant just take a step back, because people will still judge you. I like this, it puts into words those feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, of not wanting, but giving in.
