After 2 Samuel 7:1-16

No ifs, no conditions,
no contractual clauses
to ensure a quid pro quo;
instead, a promise,
a promise made and kept.

And a reminder of origins,
a signpost of where one comes
from and the distance traveled
to where one is now.

And more.

An affirmation of what will be,
a kingdom, a forever place,
and relationship of father
and child, a child through whom 
a kingdom lasts forever.
