I Promise

I promised myself happiness, though I am been held as a sorry sorrowful soul 
I am tamed and hated, stamped and not heard, am living the agony of my 
life.  Hope I shall never lose for my faith is my believe, as am I looking 
forward to making it happen for me . As it’s been said that believing is the 
right motivation to success, so am I proud of being who I am, a dreamer I 
might be but am not hopeless nor hasty in anyway as time is justice 
meanwhile often the goal is nearer than It seems to a faint and faltering man. 
I believe a day will reborn for my call and manipulate every evil bound set 
against the will of destiny, a day that victory will be manifested as I rejoice to 
my faith accepting.  When things go wrong, as they sometimes have to When 
the road you're trudging seems all rocky and uphill When the funds are low 
and the debts are high and you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When 
care is pressing you down a bit rest if you must, but promising never to quit., 
to find the true facts of the unbridled love the reason behind the whole 
apathies. It might seem too much the whole programme am willing to take on 
my behave but not ego centric. A promise that have been made needs to be 
fulfilled so are the rules and so shall it be in my case. What is an emotion, first 
i invested so much time trying to understand the cruelty and the habits of life 
then took the huge step to work on my dreams and my feature it helps 
enormously towards reaching ones goals. I promise myself better days to 
come.

    Betty, it sounds as though you have plenty of pain to write about but you're on the right road to success by sharing it with others. (Like those of us here in "PS"). I enjoyed reading this because you've given me a new perspective on life which makes me a little more open to the pain and suffering (and the joys & Happiness) of others. NEVER STOP WRITING! You have plenty of meaningful thoughts to share. Take care, Terry
