Habit Interruption

What did the parable about commitment mean
when it was indicated: don't leave
for a river goes to canyon
when the spot has been chosen

and of course, as you know,
deeper is better, including with snow
thus not just one flake 
in minding your stake

addiction is the same
shallowly name
as your hand might be pushed
to write once again 

a failure in kindness
as long as it's repeated
shall be forgiven
for that's how it is

personalities, traits,
such is the story
scissors and fates
habitual glory.
