Invisible, Unseen, If you don’t see me, do I cease to exist to you? If I don’t exist, then does that mean I must abide to the laws that you do? I can bet that the moment I break from those rules, I will become existent. Funny isn’t it. “The Invisible Everyman”, perfect in his ability to follow every rule and guideline the powers that be set in place for him. He has always tried his best at work, even though he is utterly average, and entirely invisible. Unlike others, he is exactly, what everyone wants him to be. And his reward for this is that we ignore him, treat him as though we have no knowledge of his existence. He smiles to people in the street, only the ‘right’ people though, he knows that following some rules is seen as negative, but he knows they are rules for a reason. To be seen, you must break the rules, you must aspire to be more than you should, more than they want you to be, you must be too much for one person to handle, so they hand you on to the next. Never be one of the crowd, breaking out can be… Messy.

So, there it is, the conundrum of life, do what you are told to do, what you are made to do, and you will cease to exist, but fight back, kick up, kick off and kick out, show that you are different, that you don’t care for their rules, and you will be rewarded, for being what they don’t want you to be. You become known.
