It began with second guessing.
Well, I’m unsure, but I suspect.
Yes, it started with simple things
then things simply became complex.

At first, “What shall I wear today?'”
Of course, “Does this go well with that?”
Before I knew, all Hell broke loose,
and I wondered if I was fat.

Next thing, it was the way I spoke,
Was I using proper diction?
Then, “What kind of person am I,
am I headed for perdition?”

When finally I could relax,
surrender to the winds of fate,
I poured a cup of hot coffee,
sipped and thought, “Aahhh, ain’t life just great?”
