The Promises of a Person

Some people enter your life
with the appearance and promise of love
yet all they have to give brings pain and bondage.

Incompleteness and woundedness defines them
on a good day; their weaknesses and insecurities
control them–and you–on a typical day.

Some people enter your life
with the evidence of life’s scars from battles
yet they consistently desire connection.

Even though you keep them at a healthy distance
for sanity’s sake, they give willingly and unguardedly
and they keep coming back.

Some people enter your life
with nothing to vouch for them
and nothing to claim to their good name.

These people will consistently surprise you
with the evidence of angel-like qualities
of other worldly wisdom and presence.

The promises that come into your life
with the entrance of a person
may be disappointing or just maybe altogether glorious.
