Demerits of Bad Habits


Protect your health by following good habits
Eliminate bad habits firmly from your life-style
Those habits that are injurious to body and mind
Must be driven away without any second-thought

Acquiring a bad habit is a very easy one really
As that will entice us by giving immense joy
We will be lured by its power like a true fool
We may not study the badness of that habit

That habit will be initially like a flimsy thread
After its regular practice, it becomes a cable
Then slowly it will show its devilish attitude
Afterward, we will be caught in its bad net

Gradually it will take the upper hand cruelly
Its dangerous effects will come one by one
We will be in a soup due to its deadly grip
Its iron hand will crush us with its weight

Wise people will escape in the initial stage
Coming out of it requires great determination
Strong will combined with Godly blessings
May help one escape from its dirty clutches.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Bad habits we easily form, They will do maximum harm, They may create a storm, Spoiling our calm. Best way is not to fall a prey, Superb way is to ever pray, With faith in life always stay, All bad habits will go away.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
