Promises 2016-32

How many times have we promised something to someone? How many times have we done so, with the knowledge we will not fulfill the promise? This is a common trait in life and one thing that is usually forgiven if we do not keep the promise; or is it forgiven?

Promises 2016-32

 

A politician saying what he will,

 

Again, again and once more again,

 

A bride and groom at the alter,

With words of the expectation of return

 

A rainbow in the mist and sun,

 

Saying no more floods.

 

A promise made with deceit, love

 

hope and faith.
