A Skill half completed is wrong -
making one weak and not strong.
A Journey half traveled is wrong
even when the journey is very long.

Like a word once given, can not be removed,
even if the task promised is disapproved.
When such a word is taken back; moved,
for a bad character makes; that is proved.

Unfinished journeys,promises and tasks,
make the giver of such, like a wearer of masks.
One knows not when to trust or doubt,
When such a one is about.

When you word is your promise, when given;
when your worth by truth and honor is driven.
For who speaks thus with compassion,
that one will rarely be out of fashion.
