What is it that drives guides us and directs
Sets our intention when we’re down resurrects
Shapes the foundation of projects we choose
Picks up our spirits when we have bad news
It is so much bigger than our small selves
Something eternal pulls us off our shelves
Goals we commit to promises to others
We’re a link in a chain of sisters and brothers
Working alone deeds reflect our own stance
Choosing moves mirror our very own dance
When you widen the circle expanding your reach
Then comes the real joy to learn and teach
Capacity expands results multiply
Joining with others you reach toward the sky
What we owe them is what they expect
They are entitled to promises kept
Where this points you as you sit and reflect
Stay conscious of promises at your peril neglect
Others rely on what you say you’ll do
Honor self-worth and to others be true
How conscious are you of the promises you make to others?
How often do you fail to deliver what you say you will?
Do you renegotiate the promise before the performance is due or do you
just deliver when you get to it?
How do you think that impacts your reputation? Your integrity?
