Addiction Leads to Destruction

Develop never any addiction No addiction is a benediction That gives a fine protection Avoid bad habits' induction Once in addiction you are caught That will make you struggle a lot You can't remove it from thought Then peace will be a big naught Prevention alone is the best remedy To follow bad habits, be never ready, As they will put you surely in jeopardy By making the flow of troubles steady Once for bad habits you give a room They will gradually fill life with gloom There will be in sorrows a severe boom Then, you will be forced to face doom Bad habits will be initially damn thrilling With joy and mirth, life, they will be filling They will grant you a hilarious feeling Later, with troubles, you will be dealing Every bad habit, you must properly identify And its enticement, you must strongly defy A chance for it, in your life, you must deny As its good effect is indeed a dangerous lie When wish reaches the stage of obsession Then, an addiction is in your possession, Stopping it alone is the wisest decision Or else it will take only to full destruction Do nothing beyond a certain limit If your mind wants, never permit The desire may come to often hit But, by using will, firmly prohibit Every habit must be in your control No habit, you, by being blind, enroll Bad habits are no diamond, but coal They will definitely cripple your soul Always weigh wisely the pros and cons And give to bad habits no single chance Your determination, shrewdly enhance Bad habits make the holder their pawns!
