Trust is it something earned or something given freely?
Do we have to have it in one go, or can we take it weekly?

Is it something that is measured, that we buy by the foot and inch?
Or is it sold only by weight, so we need to buy a pound or a pinch?

Trust if it is trustworthy, how does one really tell?
But we need to have it with each other, if we want to get on well.

Trust the word is simple, it is only five letters long,
But devastation follows-if we get those letters wrong…

Trust, one needs to earn, and not just  to expect it free, 
A word bandied about a lot, but it can be squashed just like a flea.

Trust one should be wary, but try never to leave it to late
Trust one hopes can come in sizes I’d like mine at five foot eight…

 BTW I am 5'8"

    I like the measurement aspect you apply to Trust Mandy - quantifying trust seems more realistic oppossed to a total, absolute endowment of that precious commodity - I am ambivelant about providing trust,sometimes I think it proper to give trust immediately then withdrawl degrees of it incrementally if people demonstrate undeserving, sometimes I think it prudent to accumulate over expoure to deportment - regardless,trust equates to hope,even love, and it is paramount - J.A.B. %
