Let me Explain

Let me try to explain this mess 
life is a pain in my ass and it has me stressed
sometimes I want to quit, give cause I can't take no more
probably would if it wasn't for the ones I adore
they care for me
believe in me
some reason they something good in me
so I can't let them down, can't throw that love away
I need to believe like they believe
that I will have my day
But I looked at the sky, no longer blue, its all cloudy and Grey
I am on the pursuit of happiness
but is this the price I have to pay
Every one is struggling, I know its not just me myself and I
but being stuck in this rut has me feeling like life is quickly passing me bye
No girl, no kids, no one to miss me when I'm gone
reason why I write, to leave my thoughts for when I'm done
and my heart is so scarred I fail to see how hit beats 
I use to be excited to come across someone new, now I worry
with every person I meet
Are you going to be the one? The one that brings me down?
I'm not afraid of death. Worse things than being six feet underground
Like being forgotten, or never really loved
I know I'm going to hell. Never was suited to be sent above
But I did my best to make people smile
All I wanted was to see people happy
saying that it sounds stupid, but not in the mood to hide being sappy
So if words are ever spoken for me. Know l loved all who loved me
just wished when I looked in the mirror I could see what you see
But I guess that's a human flaw. Never knowing how good we really can be
But this is just me venting, getting things off my chest
trying to explain, a little, why my life's a mess.
