PROMISE BROKEN

Written by: Kofi Asokwa-Nkansah

I asked for wealth
And promised to use it  with purpose
But willingly did I break it on a day
Now I sit to justify my coarse
I did but not in its worse form, I said to me
I broke your heart 
After exchanging wealth for flirt
Your vigilant one has fallen
Your eyes are heavy
With such awesome strength
You let yourself flow
Yes, it drizzled their unto me
Then I was frightened
Later all was bright
This ordeal waken me
To all you have given me,when I asked
Courage, though I misused
Made me to let go of fear
An ill decision it was
But it was one I took with boldness
I sense maturity within me
To take a coarse with head up-high
Though I praise not the course
But to realize the presented values
I acknowledge
I have fallen but ain't staying down
I rise for a wise coarse
One that will not trade my wealth
Back into your hands I entrust my ways
Take charge
