I am the voice in the distance, Trying so hard to be heard. I scream and yell to let them know, But they don't seem to hear a word.

I am the hand that reaches out, to get help when I am down, I plead and grasp to get back up, But they just look at me and frown.

I am the foot that kicks itself, For being less than I can be. Their smiles and faces make me run, because inside, they do not see.

I am the face that expresses, stricken and covered in tears, Crying out to the world, The words no one wants to hear,

I'm all these things, but still nobody, The World know I'm not like most, So they silence me and shut me up, To them, I'm just a Ghost.
