Nipping things in the bud

Is awkward.
Addressing “little things”
Long before they grow,
Taking steps toward sobriety
Long before the first glass.
Breath takingly bad decisions
Don’t often happen spontaneously.
Those that fall
Were once certain
They never would
And many who promised to always be there
Found themselves walking away.
Nipping things in the bud
Is awkward
Because the best time
To deal with weeds
Is also the easiest point in time
To overlook them.
