.38) Habits

Don't be fooled, a habit
is a horse that's been tamed.
When you're heading
through dense woods,
forget the reins a moment,
taking its docility for granted—
and there it goes, heading
for the old, wild places!

Because I am an ex-smoker, I KNOW that if the habit is ever left untended, away it goes, otherwise it wouldn't be a habit, would it? ? Scarlett
