Promises, Promises

Promises
Promises, Promises

Promises
I made to you
In childhood
Teens
And Twenties
All intended, genuine
Each filled with love, hope, plenty
But years passed
Behaviors cached
and looped
endlessly
Until finally
I could see
I’d lost sight of me
In trying to be
All I’d promised
In your childhood, teens and twenties
So I let go.
Now
We each
Are Free
To be
