The Vow poem Malcolm O. Varner

The Vow

By Malcolm O. Varner
No matter how deep the sadness or wide the pain,

I vow to live for a brighter day will come again.

No matter how many mistakes I’ve made in the past,

I vow to live and in the future avoid them, surefooted and fast.

No matter how many tragedies beyond my control take place,

I vow to live and stay my course within this race.

No matter how poor or rich I may ever be,

I vow to live and aspire to search for the dignity in simplicity.

No matter how much a lover may pierce the inner core of my heart,

I vow to live for like spring I’ll get a new start.

No matter how isolated and alone I may feel,

I vow to live and do something for someone else to heal.

No matter how hopeless my situation my appear,

I vow to live and reflect until my viewpoint is clear.

No matter what happens in this life – good or bad

I vow to live, do my best, and just for living – be glad.
