Not Thankful

I’m not thankful
for the deceitful lies spit out in spiteful anger
or manipulative moves thrown at unsuspecting followers
who don’t take time to properly check the facts
I must assume I’m not that important
hurtful irrepressible accusations are spoken
meant only to scar
my heart
and create a blanket to cover
my true intentions
so no one can see the real me
becoming burdened and buried by lies and bad intentions
standing in a corner
waiting for someone to ask
my side of a situation
slowly I turn to face the wall
while hiding my hot, slippery tears
and the anger making my face contort
into something I don’t recognize
still in the ugliness
I’m hopeful for someone
to take time and listen
I’ll wait…
