Constant nagging ….. criticizing
Ain’t doing me no good
Telling me what I should do
Your could’a …. should’a …..would’s.

Too much guilt …. too much shame
Self doubt consumes my mind
This constant degradation
It’s your problem ….. it’s not mine.

What about your own mistakes?
Stop making accusations
I chastise myself too much
Don’t need your condemnation.

So tired of feeling down and out
We both know …. life’s too short
So think before you say something
You may need to abort.

Hold your tongue …. just think twice
Will this harm or will it help?
If you think it may cause pain
Best to ….keep it to yourself.
