Some are afraid to commit

Fearing entanglement they admit

Yet commit means  to accomplish

Possibly finishing that which will astonish

Whether it be a poem of hope

A love letter in a floral envelope

That novel you one day will write

Bringing satisfaction, personal delight

The man/woman you commit to

Years of affection you now accrue

Completing that university degree

Looking back drinking afternoon tea

You realize you accomplished much

Not a wasted life, since you have touched

Many along the path you have chosen

Filling your life with depth of devotion

Committing wasn’t so bad in the end

People friends family you now blend

Into a lifestyle of joy and overall peace

Thanking your lucky stars you did not cease

To commit to your future and all it entailed

Yourself in the long run you have not failed

  1. I love the different aspects of commitment you highlighted. So often the word is seen as a commitment to a relationship but what you’ve written shows how much of ourselves we do commit. As always, your take on a word prompt encourages a deeper understanding!

    1. Why thank you, that is what I was going for 🙂 You are the first to mention that. Thank you for the feedback 🙂 I appreciate that very much.
