The Invisible Woman

Aug 23, 2020

The Invisible Woman
by Shahmeen Sadiq

She's your greatest fan
an advocate for your gifts
promoting your offer
and growing your community

good heartedly
giving of her labour and love

surely if I wholeheartedly jump in
to this that I have such passion for

I will receive a share in the return
her misguided optimism says

funding her own development
flying beneath the radar
infinitely creative, always learning

Yet you don't won't or can't see her

The gaze flits over her in favour
of brighter façades, who know the rites:

The right words to say
The concepts to preach
The quotes of the learned ones

And settles for that

Less personally confronting
Pretty resonance of same

while she, eyes downcast,
filled with shame that doesn't belong to her
toils in the background

If you can relate to the woman in this poem, or if you think you have made someone else invisible because of your own blind spots, consider joining us for Deeper Explorations. Our first experiment runs on September 16, 2020 and the topic is Enchained.
