There are consequences 

Which seem inevitable 

And whatever the results

It won’t prove redeemable 

All is not totally lost

When what is to be reaped

After crossing certain paths

Flings things into the deep

Every version actually leads

Through very similar  cycles 

Alternating between levels 

Of discipline and desires

Any possible reaction now

Has its equal and opposite 

Where reasons are so inspiring 

Few clearly can ever resist it

There are just rewards 

That might demand patience 

Which aids the transition 

Into being more persistent 

Habits are deeply embedded 

More than can be justified 

And each that is outgrown 

Will be broken if we tried
