You Have to Trust Somebody: What Do You See?

Alone on the precipice, looking down in fear at the ripple marks on the rocks,

I wanted to reach for the rescue represented by the outstretched hand.

But trusting others is a challenge for me and has been so since childhood,

When I suffered so horribly from ugly conquests that others planned.

It is an enigma to me that so many people can easily believe in others,

Because I have witnessed the heartaches that accompany deceit.

Yet, I knew that I needed help if I was going to live another day,

So, I grabbed the hand offered so I would not encounter defeat.

As my feet touched once again on the top of the mountain,

I realized that you must learn to trust that some people are good.

Trusting others will spice up my life, overcoming a shortage of friends.

And I will find joy in the presence of others, as I’ve learned we all should.
