First Time Investor

Investments and Returns
Nail-biting, stomach churns
Doubt precludes
but something inside yearns

I don’t wanna fail
I don’t wanna fuck up
Put trust in the wrong bonds
end up bankrupt

But how much risk is enough?
How much risk is too much?
When your heart’s on the line
you can’t let your stocks decline

Let’s say I invest
What then is my return?
There’s no statistical test
No strategy to learn…

Share profits and earnings
Companies wanted to merge
But somehow they were passed over
Plenty of times on the verge…

Reliance on market predictions is too heavy
Sometimes it’s OK to trust instincts
But is the emotional capital there?
No way to tell for sure, and it’s no fair

That’s. Trade.
