Soon enough

A child is a promise.

A promise that the world will

be worth living in,

eventually,

she tells me.

I have no child,

I cannot understand,

she says.

It’s true,

I say,

but I know promises

are meant to be broken.

Though not to her face.

I’m not that cruel.

She’ll learn,

soon enough.
