The Backdrop

Brenda Arledge, a talented poetess, author, and a dear friend, has provided week 34th word prompt, “Habits”. I have written a poem on one of my bad habits. Hope Brenda and my fellow hubbers like it.

My Bad Habit

I want to leave you,

But you don’t leave me.

I strive to leave you,

But you don’t allow me.

I promise myself to leave you forever,

But you are glued to me all day.

I don’t want you to be with me anymore,

But you vow to be with me always.

You are with my elders,

I copied you from theirs as a child.

You are with me now,

getting copied by my youngers as a custom.

I keep a resolution in the start of every year,

Not to continue you anymore.

I want to grow you pretty,

But I forgetfully pluck you.

My bad habit since childhood

About The Poem

Biting Nails is one of my bad habits I have described in the above poem. I have always failed to get rid of this habit.

Honest confession! :)
