A Promise Is A Promise - Poem by Thandolwethu Ntshintshi

Promise to love me
Promise to care when neglect visits you
Promise to correct me but never judge me
Promise to fight for me but never die for me
Promise to rescue me but never be fraudulent for me

Promise to respect me
Promise to let me speak but never allow me to squeak
Promise to make me a man but never mandatory
Promise to respect my intellect but never commend my reasoning
Promise to never discredit my privacy but be my token to it

Promise to fortify me
Promise to best friend courage never jealousy
Promise to dream my dream but never let them shun yours
Promise to help when help helped himself out
Promise to us, to grow not I alone

A promise is a promise and I promise now to love you, I promise to care for you and I promise to build you up as a trusty from the Master builder Himself
A promise is a promise
What do you promise?
