Yes, the 'cadence' is off, but it says what I want it to say.

Misrepresented

 

I’ve been so misrepresented,

so I’ll show myself to you;

forget all the lies you’ve heard,

this is Hullabaloo22.

I live my days with streams of guilt,

I drown all the time in blame;

never do they vary

for these days are all the same.

I’m open and I’m honest,

will do what I do say,

will try to support others

in every single way.

I do not steal ideas at all,

my mind finds inspiration there

from reading, songs and pictures

and prompts made just to share.

I’ll gather up my images,

Pixabay is my source --

I’ll use whatever I do choose

as they are meant, of course.

Did I say that I’m No1?

That’s such a bare-faced lie,

my mind just does not work like that,

I write instead of cry.

There are those so clearly jealous

but if of me, they must be mad

for I live in a never-ending circle of

guilt and blame that makes me sad.

I cannot see things changing

and I flounder while I drown,

but I will not sit here silently

while others put me down.
