Their opinions are suffocating,
yet they don't know that I hear every word they speak.
I'm an inconspicuous shadow,
a loner living in the dark.
I mean nothing to these people who live center stage,
I'm just an obstruction, a blockade of invisibility.
They won't remember my name, nor my face.
They won't see me even if i walk right in front of their face.
They insult me daily, yet it doesn't register in their minds
I'm an unobtrusive shaded area in their memory.
I don't matter,
I never have, and I never will.
