TRUST – A #FWF Journey

trust[4]
Trust me was all that was said
I promise you joy
I promise you peace
I promise you hope
I promise you abundance
I promise you mercy
I promise you love
The words ring hollow in the cold night air
A thousand twinkling stars snicker at the fate
For to trust is the ultimate sacrifice
Of all the dreams,of what was
Of what could and might have been
Left with the reality of what is now
Living inside the memories
Safety is only false comfort
Remembrance of what was turns
Balanced on thoughts of yesterday
For within each moment is a choice
To fade out and fade away
Or to hold your heart open
And trust again

  1. So very true indeed Mark! This part spoke to me:

    For within each moment is a choice
    To fade out and fade away
    Or to hold your heart open
    And trust again

    Such a risk to take, holding onto to hope that the new path will be better than the alternative of a closed and lonely heart.

  3. Your poem reminds me of our vulnerability in the face of creating new lives for ourselves, especially after we’ve been hurt. It is a chance we must take ~ to open our hearts and be available to trust the new people we invite into our space ~ but a chance well worth taking. The alternative is so lonely. … Well done, Mark. 🙂

    For within each moment is a choice” resonates strongly. Thank you, Oliana
