When I was much younger,
my teacher would ask me,
'tell me right now child
what you aspire to be'.

I would refuse to answer
It always bothered me
why should I decide right now
what I aspire to be.

'You must have some focus'
she would reply to me
'there surely must be something
you aspire to be.'

And now I’m so much older
oh why was I so bad?
Why I never would decide
It really makes me sad.

Now all the tasks I ever start
have always ended bad,
half finished, barely started
now isn’t that part sad?

I wish I had aspired
instead of always being bad
can it be, that she was right?
I guess that’s what makes me sad.
