NAIVE

N   ever believes people can be back stabbers
A   ppeals for honesty where none exists
I    nvites in without a background check
V   ulnerable when being openhearted   
E   xpects people to reciprocate in kind

That’s who I am…..

    wow, putting that last little line made it so personal. I hardly think you are naive, though , like many of us, you are trusting, and I think we all need to be that way. Otherwise, how could we ever learn to trust. GREAT acrostic, Eileen, and congrats for your win.

    Yes, we do learn along the way, don't we. It's called self preservation! I know, my dear. I'm glad you have learned to cope! Hugs!

    I feel this piece deeply. It's those kind of experiences felt when one wears their heart on their sleeve. Wonderful statements!

    Yes, is there a way to get the heart back where it belongs, Drake! :) Give me pointers! Thanks for the visit! :)

    I enjoyed reading all the responses. As for me I will choose not to harden my skin. I will maintain my innocence, I will accept that I will feel hurt. I will love myself and others through that hurt until my heart will sing praises to my heavenly father who has made us all. You have done a great job bringing out people's emotions Eileen. That is art at it's best. Hugs Rick.
