Poem About Trust

Martin Dejnicki
Today’s poem is about trust. To me it seems like trust takes a while to earn, yet may be lost very quickly. It’s something that has to be proven over time. Not through words, but through actions.

Trust is something,

that must be earned,

It’s totally mutual,

and should be returned.

It takes time,

to attain,

and if you lose it,

you’ll feel the pain.

Knowing someone,

truly cares,

Where you may trust her,

with your wares.

To trust that she will

be there for you,

These peaceful feelings,

in life there are few.

To trust someone,

just open your heart,

Right now is clearly,

the best time to start.

We all have varying attitudes towards trust. For some of us, it doesn’t take very long to learn to trust others. However, some individuals find it very difficult to trust someone they have just met recently.

Those of us that have been hurt a lot in the past may place a protective barrier around ourselves. This barrier makes it difficult for us to let others into our lives and to trust them. I strongly believe that our past experiences have a huge influence with how we trust others.

An extroverted individual may be quicker to trust others than an introvert. Personally, I’m somewhere between an introvert and extrovert. For me it doesn’t take much to learn to trust another human being. Maybe this is because I’m pretty good at reading people, and figuring out who they really are. I can tell when a person is truly sincere and thoughtful and one that is more selfish and into himself or herself.

Overall, I think life can be a lot more enjoyable and rich if we learn to trust others. I’m not saying we won’t get hurt, but I believe that the vast majority of people on this earth are good and have good intentions. So based on that, I think we need to keep our hearts and our mind open.

I hope you enjoyed reading today’s poem about trust, and I wish you best of luck with all your relationships.
