I tend to dig myself holes

About 12 feet deep

6 feet wide

And no way out of them


“Just give it time”

My perfect lie

But I don’t really want to listen


This time I fell in one again

There are days I think I’m smarter than this

Yet I’m always second guessing


If I would’ve thought

If I would’ve tried

I wouldn’t be stuck in this hole

12 feet deep

And 6 feet wide
