Promise is a wonderful treasure,
Precious and delicately formed.
She’s to be valued beyond measure;
Protected from theft and harm.
Plenty would seek to steal your blessing,
As innocent as they might seem.
So brazenly without redressing;
Unashamed of killing a dream.
Don’t let them come near your heart and soul
With their propoganda and lies.
It’s promise that helps to keep us whole;
To guard her is prudent and wise.
If you clothe Promise and Dreams in light
Of truth, reality and grace;
If you hold to what you know is right,
These treasures will come take their place.
Hold Promise tightly, embrace her;
Then listen to Dream’s hopeful word.
Pursue your heart’s longing without fear;
Rejoice when they begin to stir.
