Invisibility?


Oh the irony
Of invisibility
Many people wish
To be unseen like a fish
But in reality
They’d rather people see
For when they are not there
People talk and share
Truth and gossip hurt
Make them feel like dirt
But what hurts the most
When they’re like a ghost
Is that people don’t see they’ve gone…

That many people wish

For people talk and share
Truth and gossip hurt
But what hurts the most
And makes them feel like dirt
Is when they’re like a ghost
People don’t see they’ve gone…

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
