Always 50/50

Knowing when and how to
is half of getting to where
you want to.

It takes time to learn and you
have to burn a lot of candles
read, digest, scrape the wax off your vest,

I had the option of burning the midnight oil
but didn’t want to spoil my good looks
by reading bad books and losing out on
my sleep.

if you turn things down
make sure it’s only the blankets.
