Trust, not a possession granted lightly

Not a virtue shared politely

To trust is to permit in that inner place

Without regret, remorse or betrayed haste


Trust often sketches on many codes

Carrying with it convictions load

Consenting trust to sit and sup

At its mercy may uncover its rueful cup


Trust is knowing when to hold tongue or speak

Rendering one’s nature to be depicted as weak

To invite its belief to an open door

Will require shedding slightly more


Its climb not many are willing to embark

A mount too steep to set the mark

A choice to ascend may herald a fall

A journey the heart may peril to recall


Such is the reason trust only adopts a minority

and cares to confine its confidence, a priority

Apportioning trust into another’s reliance

is an obligation of painstaking defiance
