I hate you.

I hate the way you make me feel,

as if I’m worthless and invisible—

someone unworthy of your precious time.

You are a stranger to me,

idly walking by, stopping to stare at me—

giving me a forced wave

accompanied with polite chit chat.

I stand like a ghost,

slowly moving through the lively streets,

unwilling to make a sound;

I’m silenced by your impenetrable hold over me.

I’m taking back my life;

a life filled with trying to make you proud,

a life wondering if you would approve.

You never really did anyway.
