Promises - Poem by joesiah childs

the words i say i mean to all.
i say i will stay.
i said i will be there and alway there.
but why do i make those word to keep.
my words let me be a freind a lover a brother and another.
my words let me bound with those i love
and care evening to my life i love all of them to death
as am drowning in a pool of sadness and sorrow.
my words that i go by kepts me from turning upside down
even those i feel sick tired and weak.
i say i would i say swear i say i will
i say alot but i can't say no more.
i my words i brear keep but my soul can't keep no more.
i hold on to chins of words i agree to keep and
i hold on to the one self of my from sliping away.
my words is wat make me be here today
it save other from wat that hide from within my self.
but i feel that i can't be me my true self.
its hurt to hide to wear a mask that hides
your true self from getting out.
my words are light and my words are dark.
the one will save and the one is unknown.
by my words i say my promise not to you
and not to all of you but to me i made those promise's.
why to let me be free.
