As a stallion, prancing, strong
I held my head above the throng,
Then stooped to kiss the lips so dear

    That's my country! Sadly its not in a good state now and the ending of your poem is so fitting to what's happening here. And on your comment about an Addict's Promise I am talking about the rum lol...we Guyanese like our rum although most can't hold it. In our creole: 'De brown rum does knock ya down.' (Report) Reply

    Excellent vivid words tell your story through this moving poem. When we say 'I do' I feel we have no idea how hard our journey through life will be and we are a gift of ourself to our partner in love.
    I feel your passion and your pain and thank God for writing! An unforgettable poem for me Adeline.
