Those childish promises

made with fervent belief

prove the power of intention:

Fealty sworn with hooked pinkies

in confident conviction.

    I don’t think I ever pinky swore. Did I miss out on an important part of childhood?

    I like this poem. It’s not just a childish promise, but a promise made with that confident intent that you know, can’t express, but you know, it is an intent shared and to be kept, deep.
