Invisible Me

By Ivette Cardenas Alvarado, age 12, California


Invisible me
Lonely like an unnoticeable, dead tree
Wandering like a ghost
Bullies hurting me the most
Scared, frightened, not knowing what to do
Everybody scares me, going, “Boo!”
Pushing me, pulling my hair
No one cares
I have to stand up, rise up
Get all those sad moments and lock them up
Taking over like a pharaoh
Going to throw all the arrows
Back at them, like the way they did to me
I am not scared anymore, not the way I used to be
Stronger than ever
So clever
Going to sting like a bee
No, it’s not me—no longer invisible me
