Trust

So nebulous,
trust.
We trust others words explicitly
but are surprised to learn
those words
were thrown
like a weapon
or a handful of stones
meant to trip up our thoughts,
get us off track.

And yet
trust is necessary
to live together in peace,
to dream, work, grow together.

Help me learn to trust –
not blindly
but wisely.
Knowing others are human,
make mistakes and disappoint
just as I have done
to those who trusted me.
