The Promise We Made

We live our lives each day
Waking up every morning every single day
To go to work
To go to school
To do our things
Everybody…without exception
Because we’ve made our promise
To continue no matter what
To give
To be
To contribute…no matter how small
So that our lives will be fulfilled
Since it’s been useful for ourselves and for others
‘Cause life is a journey, and we will not stop until we get to our destination

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

 Whose woods these are I think I know.
 His house is in the village though;
 He will not see me stopping here
 To watch his woods fill up with snow.

 My little horse must think it queer
 To stop without a farmhouse near
 Between the woods and frozen lake
 The darkest evening of the year.

 He gives his harness bells a shake
 To ask if there is some mistake.
 The only other sound’s the sweep
 Of easy wind and downy flake.

 The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
 But I have promises to keep,
 And miles to go before I sleep,
 And miles to go before I sleep.
