A Vow To Myself #Poetry

I asked for your blessing…
instead you explained

What I should be thinking
to lessen your pain

You told me if only
I’d say it this way

My words could have meaning
and influence—sway

But power and fortune
are not what I sought

If influence only
gets brokered and bought

So the blessing passed over
your lecture now done

A vow to myself
—from you I must run
