"writers write, so they can taste life twice"

I set out to do twenty,
I only do ten;
I set out to run the full course,
I only run half;
I set out with a heart full of adventure,
But I stop at the first obstacle;
I have more than ten forts in my yard,
Not one is finished;
I tried a diet,
Sorry, chocolate called my name;
I put up a Christmas tree,
I only bought lights;
I tried writing a novel,
There was no ending;
I attempted reading a book,
I lost it the next day;
I played a game,
But I got tired and started walking;
In everything I did, finishing was always a problem
Just like I didn’t finish this

\"Remember as a child when you\'d try to express yourself by drawing a picture, but your clumsy motor skills just couldn\'t do it, so you crinkled up the picture? So now that you\'re older, where are your pictures, or are you still stuck in that child\'s mind of crackling up your ideas? Express your thoughts, no matter how silly you may think they are!\"
