Trust, that painful word without meaning,
Trust a Father, he hurts you,
Trust a friend, they desert you.
Promise, that pointless word never kept,
Promise you'll always be there, you won't,
Promise you'll not say a word, you will.
Believe, that greedy word that everyone wants,
Believe in family, they split up,
Believe in in God, he ignores your cries for help.
Love, the worst word, never practiced,
Love life, it becomes a curse,
Love anyone, they leave you, hurt you, or worse.
I trust only one, a sister to me,
I promise, but don't often keep,
I know not what I believe,
I love cautiously!
