The Promise - Poem by Funmbi Aransiola

'I will give u liberty, but first give me ure spirit,
This I must confiscate because the evil fear it.'
I too would be afraid of passion governed by reason
An open mind 2 trying times when corruption is in
season
The promise that they claim
2 be completely true
is hypocrisy at its finest
A trick 2 silence u
never will I believe a promise
from the masters of the Art
Trickery does not succeed
with those with Honest Hearts
