Invisible (In The Shadows)-Poetry

Invisible (In The Shadows)

I am invisible.
Always in the shadows.
Secluded hiding,
because I don’t want to bother.

No, I don’t like the light
on me;
It makes me feel
so visible.

Attention is what I
try to avoid.
When everybody stares at me,
I feel so vulnerable.

So I stay
in the shadows,
although I want to be noticed.

Want my voice to be heard,
my words to be read.
But, I feel uneasy
in the light.

In the shadows,
I feel safe.
