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
