Bad Habits Bring Demerits


If you possess a very bad habit
You must leave it either bit by bit
Or all of a sudden in one stroke
So that it can never at all provoke

In case gradual leaving is followed
Temptation must not be allowed
Feeling to enjoy makes one repeat
So, in our oath, one will face defeat

If the habit is in all the ways injurious
And its continuing makes life serious
Without second thought, leave it please
As it will destroy your whole peace

Any kind of wastage if the habit brings
You must firmly cut all of its wings
We must never have a second-thought
As the habit will make us suffer a lot

Your thoughts must be highly shrewd
Your welfare must be carefully viewed
Behaving just like a cat on a wall
Will cause only disaster dear pal

See all the negative aspects wisely
And derive that that habit is costly
Not necessarily in monetary term
As that habit may make you infirm

Highly intelligently if you now quit
You may later feel proud of your wit
On the other hand, if you pursue
Your happiness will never continue

The ball is purely in your court only
Think of the mirth of your kind family
If that habit ends, bliss will be yours
If it ends not, surely you lose powers.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
