I promise not to be a slore,
to not want what comes
or anything more.
 
I promise to love, respect,
and take charge of myself,
to not give into self—image,
not give into self help.
 
I will not overlook my ideals,
will not turn into someone
who can’t manage to heal.
 
I promise to wait and hold out for a man
who treats me as equal as any other can,
I will not be dumb,
I will not grow numb,
this promise I keep,
this man will come.
