big promises, small trust

When a promise is big

trust is small,

when hope is high

you fear the fall.

When the promise is small

trust is big,

belief is easy

when the stakes are low.

Cynical, clinical,

call it what you want

but experience says

a big promise

is usually a big let down.

Kind of sad, but kind of true.

But I’m still a believer in some VERY big promises.
