If I were invisible, I wonder what I’d do?
I would stand on rooftops so I could see the view
I’d wander through the park and push the children on the swings
If I were invisible, I could do all kinds of things.
I could stay out in the garden till its too dark to see,
and no-one could stop me and call me in for tea.
I would have no-one to tell me to put my things away,
I could leave my room messy and have lots of time to play.
I could run around for hours, go dancing in the rain,
Stay up till I felt sleepy, and no-one could complain.
Watch everybody’s fireworks and live on chocolate bars,
Lie down in the tall grass and look at all the stars.
I could make buildings with my Lego and not have to take them down,
Go on buses on my own, and travel round the town.
I could go on roller coasters, go swimming in the pool,
Wear anything I wanted, I’d never go to school.
I could be really noisy, play my music very loud,
shout at football matches and get lost in the crowd.
I could go to loads of parties and never take a shower,
I think that I would love it, imagine all that power!
If I were invisible someone nobody could see,
Would I really find it special? Would it feel like I was free?
Would I miss my family? Would I miss my friends?
What would it really be like if being invisible never ends?
