Walking Bones – a poem

How can people do that? How can they walk right pass you And don’t speak? Even when I say hello, how’re you doing? They just look at me Am I a ghost or in some form of Invisibility? I know I may not mean nothing to you But if I A simple girl Have the proper decency to Give you notice, To give you some form of existence Then why can’t you Show some in return? What have I done to you? I wake up in the morning- -Thank you Jesus- And start my day with a smile Across my face New hopes and mercies I gain I lift my chin high Because I am somebody I don’t know about you… While breath still enters and exits my body While blood still runs through my veins Yes, I am real. I am a person. Feel my skin, poke me for all I care I am a living soul Wipe the veil growing over your eyes I know I have God on my side And I don’t need no better friend But wow. Can people be so distant from their brains That they end up loosing themselves And looking like fools And don’t even know it? What a shame. I shake my head And go on with my day At least I know who I am I don’t need your confirmation Because when you decided not to Say anything back and kept moving on You just proved That you are nothing but walking bones
