Promises - Poem by PAUL COLVIN
Promises given are seldom received
With the merit deserved, as we’ve all been deceived.
Pipe dreams are promised but rarely are kept
As our bodies are blessed with a brain so inept.
Don’t promise the earth when it’s not yours to give,
Don’t spoil that moment, life’s given to live;
Who gave you the power to shatter a life,
To take away dreams and replace them with strife?
