The promise

 

Begrudged every breath that leaves my body

Beyond any hope to save my soul

Bereft any emotion save pain.

 

Tired...

The words beat dull

Tired...

Is the beat of the words

Tired...

 

Hope for the now is gone

Hope for what was is gone

Hope for what will be lives on.

 

One day...

The words beat angry

One day...

Is the words beaten oath

One day...

 

The promise sustains

The promise retains

The promise is, the promise was, the promise will be.

 

Tomorrow...

The words beat soft

Tomorrow...

Is the beat of broken words

Tomorrow...

 

I alone can survive

I alone am able

I alone promise myself

(The words beat)

The promise of tomorrow...
