I’ve spent a few days on thinking how to exactly write this. Hunter Hayes’ new single Invisible is the taunted side of being bullied. While it is only from a personal experience of being “lightly” bullied, I think it applies to those who have been bullied physically, verbally, and mentally as a light at the end of the tunnel.
The setting of the song is a high school and I find that very fitting because that is where most of this type of bullying comes from. I stuck out, I was the socially awkward band nerd who loved history and other things people never wanted to confess about themselves. I always walked with two left feet and so life never felt right. If this song was around when I was in high school, it would probably be an anthem of sorts for so many people because he gets it, he knows the pain of being the last one chosen during kickball, the pain of sitting alone during lunch, and always being the one your friends leave out when they make plans. He gets it because he went through the same thing. He was the outcast for having music as his passion and because of that, he stuck out and was mocked for what he liked. Now look where he is now…
There is so many moments where you just want to give up and throw in the towel and while that is easier than fighting to survive another day, that next day is the stepping stone to the light at the end of the tunnel.
“Oh and never be afraid of doing something different, dare to be something more”
Looking back now, I can proudly say that I have learned a lot since the days when I thought tomorrow would never come and now, after high school, you realize that all that criticism you received was useless because the adult world embraces those passionate in things like history or music. After high school, what happened in those four years are fading memories that only pertain to the walls within that school. No one judges as harshly because there are other things to worry about. So while there was so much hurt that happened then, things become so much better now. Find a friend who is just as weird and stick with them because those are the only ones who will matter once you cross that stage. Be visible, but let the hurt and pain be invisible.
“Hear me out, there’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now. Yeah, someday you’ll look back on all these days and all this pain is gonna be… Invisible”
