Abused

Some people are physically abused
See that’s the difference between me and you
I was mentally abused
And I don’t know what to do

I just want to be through
Then I look to god like when will I be through
I never get an answer that’s when the suicidal thoughts start to play through my mind

I often dream about making it to the grand stage so I can shine
But I can barely escape my mind
So how will I ever let it all go and really grind
They say wait for your time
But time is the only thing I’m scared won’t last

I’m held back by the past
And I just wish I can finally let go
So much shit that I regret
So much I wish I could take back
I wish I was man enough to stand up for myself

But I wasn’t and I looked for everyone to give me help
And no one reached out now I just blame myself
I’m just so trapped in my own mind
