The promise

Life is a dream, a journey, a promise
A promise of hope that we all share
A promise of love that we all desire
A promise of good things we yearn to come
Yes! Live for today, but prepare for tomorrow

Braced with words as my bricks
And with vision as my cement
I build upon a future promise
A promise to secure a better tomorrow
Yes! Live for today, but prepare for tomorrow

I begin by writing a very strong foundation
Wording the pillars and walls to ever stand firm
Against life blows and against the test of time
Against trials that lace the stormiest weather
Yes! Live for today, but prepare for tomorrow

Day by day I jot down layer after layer
Poeticizing each line with the spirit of life
Adjoining them with a passion bestowed as a gift
Then roofing with wisdom that gives life true meaning
Yes! Live for today, but prepare for tomorrow

No good is a promise that’s empty or broken
No good is a man who keeps not his word
So with poetry i fulfill a promise that will last
For all of eternity, inspiring a great future
Yes! I live for today, and i prepare for tomorrow
