Trust (2004)

It is trust’s fragility

That too many disregard

And when someone’s been hurt repeatedly

They tend to harden their heart

If someone gives you their trust

It’s not to be spent on an impulse of lust

Trust is like delicate glass

To be handled with care or it won’t last

And in this world in which we live

Trust is not something that’s so easy to give

This is a defense people use against all

To surround their hearts with impenetrable fortress walls

For some it’s so difficult to ever trust completely

So take care if someone gives you their trust freely

Nicely said and thought out. You are showing the deepness of your heart, along with the wisdom of it that life has taught you. This poem should be given to all people, especially politicians!
