Invisible

Can you see me here,

Crying for the lost?

Invisible.

Do you hear me

As I scream against injustice?

Invisible.

Can you feel me

As I turn your eyes toward poverty?

Invisible.

Do you know how hard

I’ve tried to show you everything?

Invisible.

You cannot see me

Sitting and mourning for the dead.

Invisible.

You do not hear

My anguished cry for the merciless.

Invisible.

You cannot feel my

Hands pushing you towards decision.

Invisible.

Unable to figure out exactly

What causes things to go bad.

Invisible.

Falling down, you begin

To see things.

Invisible.

Now you can see me,

No longer opaque.

Invisible.

You can hear the

Bitter cries.

Invisible.

You now feel the

Forces pulling you.

Invisible.

You see, you hear,

You feel, you know,

Because you are

Invisible.
