If people are virtues, you are mine

A friend of mind suprised me with a text message. It turned out to be poem for me.

—-
If people are virtues, you are mine.

Routinely practiced.

Religiously done.

Constantly undertaken.

Repeated again and again,

Like my favorite song on loop

Or a pop music blasting on every radio station.

 

They say it takes 21 days to get used to something.

21 uninterrupted days.

After that, things become a habit

And you know how they say old habits die hard, right?

I have searched the yellow pages,

Looked through classified ads,
Scanned bulletin boards,

But none would point to an easy way to kill being used to.

 

I guess it can only die a slow death.

I guess I just have to get through another 21 days.

 

Because if people can be virtues and you are mine,

I wish I had known it will be better to live in vice.

-Audrey Bulfango
