Passing through busy crowds
I am invisible

I can see everyone
Nobody can see me

Disregarded by friends
Overlooked by strangers

I seek recognition
For what I have to give

My kindness is smothered
by a world full of hate

My intellect dismissed
by hostile idiots

My talents ridiculed
by ignorant dullards

I find myself ensnared
in a paradox trap

The more I seek esteem
the quicker I vanish
