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? It depends on the promise and the person we made the promise to, I would guess……
I think of the times I promised my God that I would do this or that if He would do something in particular, but did I do what I promised Him eventually?; don’t know or will not say…
A politician saying what he will,
Again, again and once more again,
A bride and groom at the alter,
Making a forever wish
The soldier going off to a war,
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.
