THERE BUT OVERLOOKED

I walk by unnoticed
There but overlooked

Slip by crowds of cliques
Elbowed and pushed

Slink in and out of classrooms, privies
And I’m never spared a glance

I holler and yell,
Flash signs for help
They go blind and deaf and mute

I walk in hallways
There but overlooked

When you have no one that you know or are close to, It's incredibily easy to become invisible. I do it all the time. If I just stop talking, no one even notices that I'm even breathing. Youre not the only one out there who is over looked. Trust me. By the way... I loved your poem. It's short and sweet but meaningful.
