Old habits die hard


Old habits die hard
There are no special words
One is dependant
So such reaction instant

Man may love wife
But situation is strife
Both will have to work to meet an end
Life is needed to be friend

Both have needs
There are children to feed
So one has to sacrifice
And stand with promises

Life is like boat
It will not work with nice quotes
You have to work hard
Look and surge ahead

Time may favor
But if you work with sincerity and honor
It is long way
Yet it may pay

Take no grievance
Wait for chance
Life is not that cruel
You may certainly feel

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
