I did it again

I overthought

I opened my mouth

And now it’s all gone


I screw it all up

I tear myself down

I cry it all out

Do this year round


I thought I would stop

But clearly I’ve not

So here’s to all that I’ve lost

I’m sorry I thought

    This is the absolute truth. Glad I'm not the only person that questions these things. Sometimes it feels like i shouldve just kept my mouth shut, but since life is so short I just say what I feel like saying. I enjoyed the read, and thanks for posting.

      Good Evening EVERGREEN ~ Angela & Brian Here !

      Methinks it is better to OVERTHINK
      Than to never THINK at all !
      People who UNDERTHINK are introverts !
      CHRISTMAS is the Time to OVERTHINK
      OVEREAT and (in moderation) OVERDRINK
      To OVERDO to Bill & Coo and in SNOOKER
      even OVERCUE ! In 2020 there*ll be plenty
      of TIME to put thngs right for *AULD LANG SYNE* AMEN !

      Our MANTRA is *Never apologise for OVERTHINKING* - OK
      Blessings & Peace & Joy @ Christmas
      Love ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก
