Commitments

It has always been important,
To expose and display...
With a showing to those younger,
By the ones who have 'accepted' aging...
To be bold and courageous,
When commitments are made...
In a keeping of one's maturity.
To intend to have them stay that way.

But for whatever the reason many adults believe,
They should keep young ones pleased...
By proving they too can do dumb things,
To then produce foolish excuses made...
With a running away from responsibilities,
Declaring there is a need for outside assistance...
That protects them from a lack of their own negligence,
Is...
More today permitted,
By unintended commitments made to ignorance.

'When I recommended,
Commitments are made to stay with them...
I did not intend for you to interpret,
That not paying attention to comprehend...
Automatically happens when your ears are closed.
And your mouth constantly left kept open.
That's not the kind of commitments made I'm talking about.'
