The Boy No One Noticed

No one ever payed any attention to the boy in the back of the class besides me.

No one noticed that he always wore long selves even in the summer.

No noticed that he was way to skinny.

No one noticed that his sister and parents died on the same day not to long ago.

No one noticed that he ate lunch by himself.

No one noticed how smart he was even with a 4.0 GPA.

No one noticed his perfect attendance record.

No one noticed his awards.

No one noticed him dying on the inside.

No one noticed him crying in the back of the class.

No one noticed that he never talked.

No one noticed he didn't have any friends.

No one noticed he was depressed.

No one noticed he self-harmed.

No one noticed how he always fell asleep in class.

No one noticed him coming to school with bruises.

No one noticed that his new parents did them.

No one noticed when he didn't show up to school one day.

No one noticed not even after 2 days.

No one noticed untill they found out he committed suicide.

No one noticed untill the teacher told the class.

No one noticed untill they had to clean out his locker.

No one noticed untill they held an assembly

Funny thing is that I noticed but I didn't do anything.

They held a memorial to remember him in school.

People cried yet they didn't care enough to know more about him.

They all knew him as the quiet guy.

But I knew him as The Boy No One Noticed.
