“The way to hell is paved with good intention”,
that’s what one says to mock on New Year’s eve.
Why not believe in a short time suspension
when we try hard one oddity to leave?
Nobody said that we would go to Heaven
just for one vice that we had tried to beat.
We had stopped only on day seven
which even God decided was a treat.
Habits are hard to break, that much is true.
We easily drop back in old routine.
But then again the ways that slowly grew
are well worn out and seldom just a spleen.
