A Poem by Jeanette

I've always been that girl in the back

Behind you, less than you

Beneath the bar of popularity


I've always been that girl on the side

Not leading, not playing

Observer, never participant


I've always been the girl left out

Forgotten, dismissed

Didn't even get a chance


I've always been the girl put down

Not as pretty, not as fun

Easier just to stay at home


I've always been the girl UnNoticed

You don't look twice

I might as well be invisible


But I have been the fly on the wall

I have seen your secrets and all


My knowledge is great

With it, YOU I could break


Being unseen has given me power

My strength could make you cower


There's something to be said

For the ones who can blend

You assume they are nothings

When they can control your end


You might want to think twice

Before you reveal who you are

In the presence of "nobody"

Your words can go far


Be careful who you dismiss

And of who you judge

It can come back to bite you

In the form of a grudge
