Trust


Oh trust! you creep discreetly with no noise
And no sound, while i try to reason
Myself with logic why you sprouted for sort like you destroys
My feeble little heart, from season to season

Oh heart! you know you cant afford
To let you get carried away anymore by such noble traits
Which have become too ideal for some cowards,
In this topsy-turvy world, to portrait

Like an oak tree, this trust grows strong in silence
But I know only too well that as the tree falls
With thundering noise; so does this caliber, as the false pretense
comes into the limelight and with no dramatic sound, my heart, it appalls

Still I let this virtue advance, fueled by the traitor heart,
Despite the odds being as plain as day
For one day I might sit down and exclaim
As I, against my will, trusted I have paved to this wonder life, a way

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I chose to write on this particular trait called trust because I hear all the time about people being in a dilemma whether they should trust or not. Thinking constantly about what would become of their decision. So here's to those who are up in the air. Everything's worth the chance as long as it doesn't kill, which is as clear as crystal that it only strengthens you from inside.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
