Promises - Poem by Dominique Gladney
I hate promises
Because promises are said but never done,
Promises are things people say that they are sure to do but never do!
Promises to me are just things
people say to get you off their back!
I hate promises because promises
has been broken so many times
that I just can't stand to get my hopes
up high just to be broken to pieces.
