Here I am. Yes I am alive. Alive yet alone, I have a mouth yet I don’t speak, I have eyes but I can't see. I have everything the other person has, maybe more but I will still be less. Here I am, sitting in a room full of people I know yet they feel like strangers. In a room where my mind is screaming but I am silent. I want to laugh with them even though nothing's funny. I have the answers to all their questions yet I remain clueless. In this room there are people who are tall, short, white, black, intelligent, dumb, popular and invisible. No, we are not the same. We don’t think as one, that's bullshit. For once the truth and nothing else will be written and the truth is that the blacks will not be treated like the whites, the short will not be as valued as the tall, the dumb will always be made fun of while the intelligent will be valued and the popular will always be noticed while the invisible will … well remain invisible.

Me, who am I ? I am the girl who sits in the corner with her earphones in on full blast and just watching. I watch and imagine. Imagine what would have happened if I spoke when I needed to, saw what I needed to see and heard what I needed to hear. Yet I didn’t, I remained silent and watched. I watched how things got worse. My mom always told me that everything happens for a reason, is that really true? because so far my life is crumbling down on me and I am struggling to find its purpose. I have everything I want right in front of me yet I don’t move. I stay completely sill and watch.
