Invisible by Luka (Aged 9) | Black History Month Celebration

While we don’t usually publish children’s writing, Luka’s mum, Sally, got in touch with this poem which we thought was fantastic. Luka’s poem is about what it feels like to be Black.


Here and there everywhere
But I’m invisible
I’m invisible
Happy, sad; angry, mad
But I’m invisible
I’m invisible
View the world, just once like me
And then you’ll see what it’s really like to be me
But I’m invisible
But I’m invisible.
I’m invisible that’s me.

Up and down the streets not bare.
But I’m invisible.
But I’m invisible.
Why can’t you listen, look, or care.
But I’m invisible.
But I’m invisible.
I’m black; I’m beautiful; and I’m brave.
I’m amazing in every way
But I’m invisible.
But I’m invisible.
I’m invisible that’s just me.
