Our Word

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Our word is a covenant to respect a pact.
We give our word as an oath
to honor the fact.

Our word is a commitment of strong endurance.
We give our word as a vow
of just assurance.

Our word is a ligature to link an alliance.
We give our word as a bond
to secure reliance.

Our word is an autograph of promissory show.
We give our word as a deal
of surety in escrow.

Our word is a warranty to uphold a claim.
We give our word as a pledge
to preserve an aim.

Our word is a credential of palmary goodwill.
We give our word as a seal
of kindness to fulfill.
