By Diksha Goel

Drifting through life, 
Moving through motions,
Frightened I could fade into a wall
And nobody will notice.
How to feel bold,
When my conscience keeps repeating: 
Just sit and smile,
Eyes downcast;
Fearing I could break
And nobody will even hear.
Standing on the roof,
Shouting for attention,
Frightened I could fall 
And nobody will flinch.
You chose
Black, grey and white,
Colors of my carnival;
I could wither away and gather dust
And nobody will even blink.
Footprints on a beach,
Stars out of reach,
Fading words on paper,
Hoping one day you will understand how I feel;
When you looked through me,
Talked over me,
Made me feel invisible
But I guess that's okay for a superpower.
