Do Over's ღ KKD ღ

Do Over's

As a young child
Do Over's were easily given
But as an adult
so many times are hidden

The times in life
when I do fall short
I want to call "Do Over"
as an easy abort

But with my life
its just not that easy
Accountable for my actions
I must always be.

I try so hard
each day to get through
but some days it seems
my chances are few

Most days
I guess I do ok
and then there are others
just like today

There are those
who leave turmoil in their wake
Those are the ones
I just can't take

It just seems every time
I would turn around
I looked for a Do Over
that couldn't be found

There are some days
I come out on top
But on those I don't
the hits are nonstop

On the few that are good
those are surely a keeper
but those that aren't
I swear I see the Grim Reaper

The days that are hard
I wish to run for cover
But I stand firm and strong
for the Lord is my only "Do Over"
