I PROMISE



I promise
To find myself through your shadows,
To grow your seeds,
In my sorrows, I refuse to wallow. SANDRA


I refuse to wallow in myself pity
I promise to myself never to be a shadow of who you want me to be
I promise to put myself first because I am more than just a pretty face
I promise never to get lost in your words; I promise to sorrow no more. AISHA


I promise to sorrow no more,                      
My soul agreed,                   
I pledge allegiance with my might as big as a mall,                            Nothing will burn my heart again not love nor greed. TOLU


Greed and lust, I desire none
I promise to stay safe, it's needed
Out of disdain I stare and I'm done
I fail yes, but I learn indeed. PEACE


Indeed, our journey has been tough and rough.
Still together, we win against odds and plots.
I promise we are forever, even in deep fever
Writing our never ending tale as one. TOSIN


As one, in strength and love
We will cross over our high walls
Grow in love and dignity
And achieve greatness above all odds. STELLA


Odds against us never will deter
Promises we made each other kept
Though things go hither thither
Still our love be sound and set. SUCCESSA


When the nights are darker
and the demons get closer.
When the thoughts go toxic,
I promise to be your lantern in the dark. GABRIEL
