Promises, promises
I’ve made them, I’ve broken them
I’ve kept them

Why do we make promises
we know we can’t keep?

Why do we inflict pain
on ourselves and others?
You know,

we sow what we reap

They call it karma
but when will we ever learn
if we don’t stop

to carefully consider
before we make a promise
it is our soul that will burn

not in hell but on this earth
When our consciences wake up
we must experience trauma

then make a commitment
to exercise mindfulness
and really change
