Lose the P

SUBTRACT youth’s silver smile

KNOCK OFF teenage slouch

ZERO guitar fantasies

DEDUCT hipster cool

TAKE AWAY belief that good things come in time if you put time in

MINUS love around the corner with a perfect size glass slipper

GIVE UP hope that next card dealt will bring a royal flush

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­LOSE the p from pluck

LUCK is all you’re left with
