Favorite Quote:
"Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard."-Tim Notke

I may be concealed,

but it does not mean I am invulnerable.

Just because I am not self conscience,

does not mean rude remarks are acceptable.

I may be inconspicuous,

But maybe I want a friend.

I may be obscure,

And want someone who cares to figure me out.

Just because I do not voice my thoughts,

does not mean it is okay to pick on me.

Even though I am ethereal,

People fail to treat me as such.

Just because I am invisible

Does not mean I am invincible

The author's comments:

I had a friend at my old school who was picked on because she would not stand up for herself. She was a shy sort of butterfly, and she just rolled with the punches. Before I left, I had a heart to heart conversation with her. She just wanted a true friend who would accept her and not pick on her because she was different. This poem is dedicated to her. <3
