DAILY POEM " PROMISES"


To people who have been promised things over and over.

How many times do we hear that Phrase?
which can often sound false or empty of grace
are promises kept in this uncertain age?
with Hatred, fighting ,and feelings of rage.

Forgetting to love, embracing the time
when man, woman ,child are fearless of crime
I wonder when someone will tell this old tale?
when chivalry was meaningful ,not for sale.

Protection of others no fear for thier fate
this all happened at so early a date
the future of happiness, promises of love
try Lending a hand fitting the glove.

Show your emotions learn to forgive
even the enemy you don’t want to live
spare a thought for the dying and lame
don’t let humanity die of it's shame.

Promise to think out loud ,proud and clear
hold everything close that’s priceless and dear
in the end your satisfaction is gained
children are educated,things are explained…

Have you ever been promised something and let down??

  1. A promise is good, only if one keeps it.
    Promises are not kept by many in reality.
    Holiday is here, I wish your wish coming true!

  2. People shouldn't make promises because most of the time they can't for one reason or another keep them. Your poem is awesome Billy, and so true. Most people feels promises are made to be broken. LOL I wish that I had a penny for every time I have heard that in my 63 years of living. Boy, I would be rich.

  3. Great reminder for mankind to retain their integrity even while the days are dark and
    cold. We are the only ones who can keep ourselves
    and others believing in each other. It is better
    not to make a promise than to break it. marilyn
