You try, but it’s barely an effort.

You push, but it’s barely a sway.

You’re known for hard work, but you’re one step from lazy.

You’re looking up, but you’re falling away.

Don’t claim to be whole when you’re broken.

I’d be surprised if they don’t already know.

When you’re hoping to pleasantly surprise them,

Just remember that you’re bound to disappoint.
