Not Trusting


Being beleaguered by many instances we sometimes create
as barriers in our way, leading us astray.

Standing stubbornly, facing those who try and make us
back down, sometimes making the most of the situations,
other times we turn and run away in fear of what we have
tried to accomplish.

Giving up too soon at times, not trusting in ourselves
and our strength of character.

Never wondering, knowing we falter at the slightest
controversy blocking our pathways.

Crowding us down with extraordinary odds against us,
betraying our confidence and leaving us defenseless in our
self-assured shame.
