Do Over


There are moments I wish I would have been reckless in my youth
Not so thoughtful
A little less mature
Should have partied all night, slept all day
Moments I wish I would have been less committed to commitment
Ok with making the wrong decisions
Less focused on the right path
Simply allowed life to float along with no thought or reason
Lived in the moment
Not worried about the day
Maybe, just maybe, I should have been ok with not being ok
Less content with following my dreams
I should have been 18 at 18
21 at 21
25 when I was
But I was 21 at 18
30 at 21
Feeling 40 at 30
All because I was raised that mistakes cost you years
Some lessons are taught too well too early
