TRUST

TRUST

A Poem by M. L. F.

There was a tiny bird named Trust,
on wings of gold -
she flew..
She knew not more than other birds, 
in fact, she never knew -
that pain and torment were her guards,
her solemn teachers, two..
And before long, she sang a song that she,
herself, 
thought blue..
Her lyrics, more than laced with fear -
through apprehensive heart -
had told her, time and time again -
that her name -
was but a farce...
Then one day as she left the nest -
and took off towards the clouds,
she heard a bird, with feathers white -
as he called her name aloud..
His wings were weathered, just like hers,
and they spread -
for her - 
so wide..
And that bird named Trust, knew that she must -
do what her name implied..
And for the first time - 
was she moved -
to curl into his wing..
Learning how to prove -
her Trust was true -
despite torment and pain.

After a lifetime of being hurt, it can be hard to trust anyone. Keep opening yourself up to people, and they'll keep hurting you. But when you finally find that right person, the one you can trust with all your heart and soul, their embrace can make you forget all the pain and torment of the past.
