Napowrimo 2020 Day 1

Prompt: Write a self-portrait using an uncommon action as a metaphor for your life.

I’ve always been the best at hiding
invisibility’s my secret power
no one will find me out
as long as I make myself smaller

my biggest fear is blowing my cover
for what if when I show myself
my presence is inconvenient to them
and my words are a bother?

I can’t bear to face their scorn
what if they don’t like the real me?
what if they cringe when I shine my light
like the bullies did when I was 13?
