The Truth in Trust

The Truth in Trust

A Poem by ettorney
"

When trusting someone. Be wary.

"
There is a truth in trust that I trust you will know,
But only when that truth is shown.

Be wary your acts of selflessness.

Because,

If tainted with a touch of selfishness;

The latter, recalled to action,

The former, recalled as fiction.

The truth in trust that I trust you will know,
But only when that truth is shown

Will hurt you when you need it most in ways you cannot imagine.

These are words of wisdom. Hindsight is 20 20 as they say, though we are blind to the present and we see in the future. Nice piece.
