Mistrust - Poem by Francis Duggan

How can you expect others to trust you if your trust to them you do not give
That does seem to tie in it does seem with the old saying of live and let live
You mistrust someone and they will not trust you that is part of old Murphy's law
Are you one who is truly perfect the one who does not have a flaw?
How can you expect others to trust you if kind things of them you do not say
Remember that trust is always something that does not have a one sided way,
A lack of trust can lead to war and bloodshed if you don't give trust then trust you cannot receive
How can you see eye to eye with someone if on that person you do not believe,
A lack of trust leads to division and division it can lead to hate
The one that you cannot have faith in is the one who cannot be your mate,
You cannot expect trust from others if trust to them you cannot show
If you mistrust that other person mistrust in return you will know
Mistrust only gives rise to mistrust that does seem a fair thing to say
And mistrust only can breed more mistrust that is life and life is that way.
