The Girl Who Disappears

Am I That girl?

The Girl Who Disappears

Am I that girl?

Am I the girl who disappears?

Am I the one who speaks too softly?

Am I the one no one hears?

Are those the questions that I will ask

As I take my final breath?

Will I have made a mark on this earth

Before I meet with death?

Am I but a whisper

In the minds of those I’ve met.

Have I done something good,

Something they won’t forget?

Have I stood up against wrongs?

Have I stood my ground?

Or have I yelled against the wind

And no one heard a sound?

Have I raised my chin determined?

Have I been brave?

Have I cried out at injustice

Even when I was afraid?

Or am I the lonely girl

Who fades silently away?

The girl who no one has memories of

Or who had nothing to say?

Am I the girl who

No one wanted to hold dear?

Am I that girl

The girl who disappears.
