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.

    you are special always Congrats on your win.Morgan

    Came to read Rick's comment. Did you ever think this little acrostic would cause such a fuss? lol Awesome.

    Ghali Avatar Eileen Ghali Date: 9/8/2013 3:09:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I never thought so many people feel what I feel. Incredible. I thought I was the most gullible gal ever! Friends in high school would tell me we had a pop quiz coming and I'd be cramming away, and they would burst out laughing. EVERY TIME! :( I'm still a bit like that...Oh well! Thanks for your second visit.

    Naive; I can relate to this. I used to be naive - not anymore. Great for the contest..... lucilla

    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!
  1. Date: 9/8/2013 8:17:00 AM

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

    Ghali Avatar Eileen Ghali Date: 9/8/2013 3:06:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Yes, is there a way to get the heart back where it belongs, Drake! :) Give me pointers! Thanks for the visit! :)
  1. Date: 9/8/2013 7:58:00 AM

    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.

    This is wonderful, Richard. I'm glad that you have the grace to do that. I always WISH that I could, but I wind up being the softie that I am! Art at it's best! I'm thrilled! Lovely testament to your faith...

    This is what I was trying to say in my poem. We should just be ourselves and try to forgive those who hurt us.

    We all suffer disappointments at times, people are unpredictable. Even the background check can mean nothing, go with your instincts. Excellent poem. Take care, Richard
