~The mess I am in

I have done this before,
looked at the mess strewn on my floor,
and decided the situation
is not beyond salvation.
I have declaimed,
"This will not happen again."
I have sat amongst my mess,
owned it as mine, and said,
"I am clearing the path
for new things at last.
I shall now embark on a valient endeavour
like writing a novel" - but do I ever?
No, never.
