Promises, promises

Which ones will we make?

Are they ones we will keep

Or ones we will break?


What does it matter?

Do we really care?

Will we look for the courage?

To take up the dare?


It is not always easy

To be kind or be good

We’ll fall on our faces

We won’t do as we should


But it’s still worth the effort

Although we will fail

Even when we blow it

We won’t end up in jail


A promise is a promise

It’s not a command

It is pledge for the future

So we know where to stand


I’ll remind you of yours

You’ll remind me of mine

Our promises together

Will bear fruit in good time

    Amazingly written, especially the lines
    “Even when we blow it
    We won’t end up in jail” 🙂
