146. Half-built house

Don't begin to build
If you can't complete,
Before you start collecting
Bricks, cement,rods and pebbles,
Gather courage to finish.

Before you even step out,
Look inside and ask,
Do you really want to build,
Do you possess the will?

You may rent a house instead,
Where you could choose to stay 
As long as you wish,
Then look for another one
Without feeling any emotion,
Without pangs of separation.

But if you do have to build,
Don't leave it half done,
Such houses evoke pity 
Like love forsaken midway.
