They Call Me Nobody

January 30, 2013
I am no one.

People walk by without seeing me.
Stuck in the shadows of invisibility.

I am no one.

Classmates confide in each other when I am there.
They talk as if I am nothing more than a chair.

I am no one.

The opinions I have don't matter.
All they hear is useless chatter.

I am no one.

If I left not a person would realize.
They're too absorbed in their own lives.

I am gone.

I think it's sad that you see yourself this way. I've felt like this before, like I don't even exist, so I can really relate to this poem.
