Trust

TRUST

Trust that the breath you exhale

Will be followed by another one

In its own good time.

 

Trust that the wind biting your skin

Will eventually give way to

The warm kiss of the sun.

 

Trust that smiles invite,

That frowns conceal,

That eyes can be a gateway to the soul

And that words don’t always mean

Exactly what they say.

 

Trust that hurt will lead to closure

For a while

Until it’s over

And you open up again

A little bit stronger.

 

Trust that the bird gliding overhead

Won’t deposit droppings on your face

And if it does

You can always clean it off.

 

Trust in trust.

Trust in the fact that

Trusting won’t always take you where you want to go

But not trusting

Never will.
