On Invisibility

Invisible
Unable to speak
Unable to think of what to speak
Superfluous
Watching double dutch
Taking in the pattern
Never daring to jump in
Side-lined
Hearing what others need to say
Offering up all my empathy
Can’t decide to run and hide
So I hide within my mind
Self-jailed
Watching life pass me by
Don’t know how to contribute
Listening is a well-honed skill
But I’d like to learn the opposite
So I can say out loud what I write instead
