A Healthy Habit
Angela Davis (1976 / USA)

A Healthy Habit

Fun making with others is very good habit
You must enjoy it fully but bit by bit
If you are fun loving person
You should feel elated for every reason.

Do you enjoy while making fun?
Do you fear when pointed a gun?
Where you ever chased or compelled to make run?
If not, then you are exceptionally only one

We forget basic things while making fun at others
Care id not taken for feelings and never bother
When we face the same situation one day?
We feel hell let loose on us and find no hope of ray

We have no grief over thousands who perish
Take all kind of life risks which push them to finish
Still life goes on and nothing stops
Show also goes on and never flops

You can create jokes and make fun
Sometimes you may be targeted one
It is equally same for your fiends
They may pass it on to you at the end

You may feel bad and cut sorry figure
You had never expected it for sure
If you pretend to be funny and good joker
You should not end up as looser

Physical injury, if inflicted, can be recovered
New stars can also be discovered
Bitter words or ill feelings pinch us most
May deliver a blow at personal cost

Why don’t we care and respect the honor?
Whether they are family members, tenants or owner?
Let us be the first to repair the damage
Worst crisis should be faced and try to manage

You may think race is over and already won
You may not realize about ill feelings and frown
They will not hesitate to bring you down
Time is not far off when you will be completely disowned

It is better late then never or soon to be realized
Recover fast before you are marginalized
Let whole blame pass and generalized
With less discomfort and not so much penalized

Life is to be lived with full length
It is your capacity and full strength
Let it go with natural outburst
You should go in and it is must

It is easy to laugh and cut jokes
It makes you to cry with emotions to choke
The relation may soar and go into smoke
Try to avoid unhealthy jokes and don’t poke

Learn quickly and forget it so soon
Enjoy the day light and night with moon
Life may seem to be very sweet and worth to enjoy
this is how we adopt to live with joy
