Promises, Promises

January 24, 2017

The words flow so easily from one’s lips. Words that you want to hear, words that you hoped to hear, words that you need to hear in order to go on believing in the person speaking them.
We can look them in the eye, we can listen to their tone, we can look into our own hearts and try to discern whether or not these words convey the truth.
We will believe because we want to believe. Until the next anger-issue punch comes out of nowhere, the next demeaning tirade attempts to belittle into submission or some sanctimonious political representative lauds the fact that he/she is acting for the welfare of the American people and still we will want to believe.
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” Stronger, yes, but no less likely to judge correctly between and empty promise and a promise fulfilled.

If you have something to say, say it, I am not easily offended.
