Barely noticed by anyone, I slip out the door to go to school
On the bus, someone almost sits on me
I didn't think I was really that invisible
In class, I raise my hand, only to be ignored
In the halls, I fall twice
No one sees me, or helps me get up
This isn't Harry Potter we're talking bout, with his cloak of invisibility
At least he could take his off
During lunch, I check my reflection in the bathroom mirror
Yeah, that's where I eat lunch
Yeah, I see my face and all
I don't see someone who is determined
I see someone who is lost
When did I become so invisible?
When did I shut the world out?
I stand, alone in the cold bathroom and check to see if everything is in tact
I lost that centuries ago
When was the last time I had pride in myself?
What's that?
Yeah, everything is in tact

Awww. This is sad because it's so true. There are people in every school like that, and I'm sure a lot of people have had this happen at some point in their lives. Wonderful poem, as always(:
