Start Over

I stutter and stumble
the right words
already been said
I soon discover

I drifted
between life and death
excuses strangled
my lying breath

I operate 
like a broken machine
convenient for me
but unplugged 
to your hopes and dreams

I started to squeak
when I walk
Forgot to maintenance
my body
with the crap
I talk

Look past your eyes
to another face
So I can start over
leave this place

    Can really relate to verse three. Lots of start overs...didn't gain any ground. Nice write, John
