Promise And Faith


When you say something,
Without any doubt I believe it.
When you promise something,
To see it fulfilled, I wait.
When I see your promise not kept,
Still I wait,
Hoping it would be met,
Someday.

Every new day as it comes,
I look for your promised response.
Not finding it,
I do not despair, but choose to
Wait for another day,
And not allow my faith to sway.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Easy promises are easily broken,
Words we cannot keep shouldn't be spoken.

    what matters more than the promise is our faith...very cogently expressed. (Report) Reply

    I like the serene simplicity of this poem and the rhythms of the repetitions. This conveys the sense of time, simply waiting and hoping. Your poem suggests you have patience and trust - which are not easy qualities to cultivate! I hope your faith will be rewarded with the promise kept. (Report) Reply
