Who Do You Trust?

If only people knew what they were asking for… (c) Google Images


I trust you’;

Sounds very complimentary;

But bears a heavy responsibility;

Being entrusted with someone’s confidence;

Is not to be taken lightly;

To be trusted is to be held accountable;

For one’s mental and emotional sanity;

Disappointment is abhorrent to trust;

Betrayal is a taboo;

Can you play by the rules?


But disappointments are bound to happen, one might say;

True it may be, but one must be conscious enough;

Not to cause them as much as possible;

Because trust lost might never be regained.

Are you trustworthy?


Trust is such a valuable commodity;

And so should be released sagely;

Trusting the wrong person is a wasted investment;

And the giver loses more;

Who do you trust?

Do people find you reliable?

Then you’re blessed;

Not everyone has that favor to win over the hearts of others;

Don’t take it for granted;

You may be special but definitely not indispensable;


Many hearts have been broken;

On the account of trust;

Many businesses have collapsed;

Because someone abused trust;

A broken trust is strong in its effects;


Anyone with a conscience;

Would think twice of hurting you;

After saying you trust him/her;

But of course, some people would care less;

You trust them at your own peril;


We all have trust issues-varying levels of them;

I choose not to place my complete trust in man;

For he is liable to fail;

But I can afford to give him the benefit of the doubt;

So to have a shock-absorber ready just in case;



I choose to trust God;

Even when I don’t understand Him;

Because failing is not in his itinerary;

He won’t break my heart;

Instead, He’ll keep it safe…even from myself.

    I trust God for he alone is perfect.
    With other fellow humans I trust every until proven wrong, many have proven to me that is bad to truth and yet many still are proving that it’s a good thing to trust.
    To me trusting another human it’s a 50:50 change or 100:0 chance depending on the person in question. Me as a matter of principles I am 100%
