Trustworthy Telltales -

The words strut & rust can be derived from the mechanism of Trust,
Trust could not exist without doubt,suspicion and the possibility of failure,
would I desire Trust if I never had it,or couldn't have it,

many things to Trust such as creatures,currencies & concepts,
we can sustain faith in ideologies,instincts,and inspirations,
my first Trust must have been Mother,
second being invulnerability to death,

trusting the search and trusting the treasure of experience,
believing that if a man is a king for a moment then he is a king for a lifetime,
if courageous once,then gallantry can carry me again,

Trust is everything I have,it is everything that I've done
and everything that I will produce,
Trust is the morning rhythem telling me I can survive the dare of Day,
I can feel suffering yet surge,
the trustee of my Soul's account,
Trust delivers the itinerary of my intentions to the Eye of God's equity,
a warm water soothing the sting of society's satire,
bringing me to the tabernacle of plumb testimony,

trusting Life to give opportunity
and Death a passport beyond the portcullis of charity's charm,
finding gold in broken stones,
giving grief to the wicked & comfort to the confused & conquered,
to Trust that living a good Life is about developing strengths,
preventing stress from tresspassing upon your soul,
geological gusto on the rim of my religion,
I look at graveyards and say okay -

J.A.B.

    A meaningful discussion on the writing of trust. I like how you really delve into it. I am so drowsy, I almost am falling asleep at my keyboard here. Better get home now!! Glad I was able to see one of your poems before I close here for the afternoon!

    Brining philosophy and poetry together is a soul challenge and a pure joy for me Andrea. We need to understand what trust means so to appreciate our lives. I'm thrilled you brought your fun and smart eyes to me today. Rest well Andrea...J.A.B.

    Does trust require truth to be held sacred. I have trusted in lies, and lied in arms that held trust. I have givin trust to others, and taken it as well. I have seen trust misused and abused and fallen through. Does trust remain sacred without truth - Your writing leaves me with a million words, and yet not a breath.

    An inspirational write about the concept of trust. Oh, I had to look up concept to see if it was applicable in this instance..."a directly conceived or intuited object of thought". Oie, not always easy to obtain when one feels fearful or anxious. Wishing you luck and success! Mikki

    I love your respect for knowledge Mikki! Good investigative work - yes, fear can be a crippling energy,but it can help one create strength as well - as the Marines prolaim,having courage is not ignoring fear,its about facing fear and overcoming it - J.A.B.

    the sign of trust can be any where we search.Trusting can be a guaranteeing opportunity in some cases... Justin, I'm the kind of person I don't trust much... I can't seem to find that reliable strength you talk about in your awesome poem... this poem is amazing... xox~pd
