This poem captures my thought of people keeping their promises, and not only have I heard about this happening but I've lived it and it hurts.

What’s the secret,
Behind a promise?
Is it that they are nearly ever kept?
 
No.
The secret
To a promise,
Is that you can’t always trust in it.
 
Not only have I seen
The worst a promise can bring.
I’ve put up with it.
 
Not only have I seen
How it can cause a relationship to go wrong.
I’ve lived it.
 
Not only have I seen
What it can do to a love.
I’ve felt it.
 
Not only can a promise make you suffer,
It can kill your emotional way to see beautiful things.
 
It can make you want to do things
 You never thought you would want to do.
 
It can cause you to feel like nothing has gone right.
It can make you feel as if you want to die.
 
Can you even think,
Of how many die due to the loss of something they trusted in?
 
Just Imagine.
All this can be caused
By going back on two very small words
Put together to make a huge meaning.
 
Just imagine those two words.
 
I Promise.
