commitment is. . .

by nadine j. smet-weiss

in my head

the very definition

of commitment

is a certain willfulness

a hard core determination

that come hell or high water

i will do whatever it takes to

make it happen

see it through

get the job done

fight the good fight

unto death until

i surrender to life 

offering what i truly have to give

receiving all that i need to live

the reciprocity of relationship

restores the balance of

the freedom to be human

reminding me to remember 

the definition of commitment

seeded in every cell of my being

is a full and total 

yes to life letting go 

into love
