Starting Over

Starting over’s hard to do;
I don’t like it, how ’bout you?
Starting over is a pain—
Such a struggle in my brain!
Starting over makes me think
My brief life is on the brink.
Starting over, liked by some,
Makes me want to suck my thumb.

    im not doing it again for sure
    come what may through wind and rain
    i;ll see it through with the terrible old pain.

  9. Yes, I agree…we have already done the work, walked a mile,and it is suggested we got it all wrong, start over is the song. Perhaps it is best just to suck your thumb?
