Promises to Keep


We resolve to turn a new leaf in our lives

Yet go back to whining old ways in no time


Why do we break promises ever so often?

When we want a better future than our past or present


Why do we not care for ourselves?

Yet want a story that the world will tell


But if you want to change your story forever

Inspiration and motivation will have to go together


An inspired heart can move mountains and cut the seas

Don’t the stories of these people inspire thee?


Then comes the role of a motivated mind

If left idle it can behave weird many a times


Convince the mind before getting down to work

Else you will have to fight yourself first


But the protagonist of your story has the biggest role to play

If you don’t care then nobody will anyways


So be the change and script your story your way

Start with fulfilling the promises you made


Confucius said a journey of thousand miles begins with one step

Likewise success in future depends on the promises you kept


We have a long way to go and many promises to keep

So treasure every moment and every New Year equally
