What am I?

I'm a ghost.
someone no one can see
I'm neglected most
I pass through life unnoticed, but look real hard, you might find me.
I'm a ghost
and a fly

on the wall
I need change, but people don't even try.
I'm the thing you trip over when you fall
I never ask questions, never ask why
I'm sometimes so quiet, I'm not there at all.
I'm a ghost
and a fly

on the wall


I'm a butterfly...who flutters by
I'm impossible to find,
because I have no name to call.
Don't look under, around, up or down...but in the mirror; or behind.
you might see me if you had a tape of all the lives you live
you might see me briefly flash on the screen as you pressed rewind
...but I don't hold grudges, I always forgive.
I'm a ghost and a fly
on the wall
I'm always there, yet never am
I have no soul
I'm a ghost and a lamb
...yet I fill spaces, empty holes.

I am a sorrow, yet I console.
I'm a ghost
and a fly
on the wall


and a butterfly
You don't see my now
you wont see me ever
I'm not allowed...
You wont look for me now, and you will never.

I'm invisible, lost in a crowd.

I'm fading...
ethereal
I'm always here waiting

...but
I'm not sure if I'm something you can touch,
something you can feel.

If you found me
I'd be gone, and you wouldn't know where I went
Maybe I'm dead like a rock, or living like a tree
I'm evanescent.

I'm a ghost, someone no one can see.

...try to find me?

This is really expressive!  I was searching for my piece when I stumbled upon yours and I believe we have some of the same ideas.  I like your rhyming scheme and your description of yourself without giving too much away.
