My Issue

As I’m sitting here writing
I’m wondering
Where did I go wrong?
As you sit there reading
Your wondering
What is going on? 
I searched through many songs 
Looking for that one
That relates to how I feel
A little dead inside
I can’t lie
Some of y’all are wondering 
Hell you don’t know
And neither do I
Constantly trying to find
Happiness within myself 
Like a kid looking for cookies 
That are hidden on the top shelf
I know what I want 
And thats good
Cause thats usually 
The hardest part 
But getting to that step 
Of readiness 
Is my true dilemma  
How do I accept 
What I’m not truly use too
How do I move on
From everything that I’m use too 
Its causes not just physical 
But mental abuse too
Am I trapped
By my own mind forever
Is it cause I got issues?
Am I crying for help 
Praying someone brings a tissue?
Or is this all just a breeze
That will blow by with time
Can someone tell me,
Better yet
Can someone help me?
and by someone 
I mean you..
