Broken Promises (April 8th poem)

We all make them: promises
We all eventually break one
Some lightly others
With true angst

Some promises are meant
To be broken
Some should never
Have been made

Sometimes we lie
With our eyes open wide
Sometimes we are cowards
Slipping away
Refusing to say
Never owning up never paying
For our mistakes

Sometimes we have no
Idea what giving
Our word means
What consequences
Breaking it brings
Sometimes we just don’t care
Living in a world of ME

We all make them: promises
But how often we break them
How seriously we take them
Defines what kind of people
We have become
