No matter what your reason is for breaking any promise... DON'T DO IT. It is much easier on everybody if you deliver the promises you make.

A promise of yes that does turn to no,

is a sad and painful review.

It runs through your mind, thoughts bad and unkind,

self doubt displaces the truth.


You tend to accept your inner most faults

instead of just looking toward pain.

You beat yourself down, your head to the ground

the feeling just drives you insane.


So if you give your word, a promise to one,

prepare to make it come true .

For if you turn sour, change your mind in the hour

then you're painting the others' world blue.

Your poem touches on a hurtful topic when a person we have given our trust to fails to keep his/her word to us.

My father always said, "A man's word is his honor, and if we say we'll do something, we should do it at all cost."

A fine piece of writing with a worthy message,

People should never make any promises, unless they mean it.

Also, there are differences in saying that:

"I will do that."


"I will do that, I promise."

So when somebody say to you, "I will do it." does not normally mean a promise to you, rather, it was a commitment to the speakher himself/herself. It bears no obiligations to others rather than the speaker.

That is the difference between a promise and an obligation.

100% I agree, except in the case of sex when you discover the S.O.B. is foul with his clothes off or pulls out whips and chains and is very much into your feeling pain, then I think you can break a promise. ;-) Sorry, too many logic classes.

Oh, fantastic writing, you sexy man. I almost forgot.

The power of what we say, is more important then what we do. No one seems to forget a broken promise. Good advice!
