Scared To Trust - Poem by Amy Kerswell

Im scared to trust now.
I had my trust broken many times before.
I was left a broken girl.
I still am broken inside.

I simply cannot trust.
Its not you its me.
My trust cant be broken again.

So dont ask me to trust
Cos I cant do it.
Im to scared to trust

    Trust in others erodes sometimes when one goes through bad experience.Trusting oneself, gathering strength from inside and moving ahead is real victory in life.But trust, there are many loving souls around. (Report) Reply

    As a former English teacher, I can't help suggesting a few corrections:

    I'm scared to trust now.
    I had my trust broken many times before.
    I was left a broken girl.
    I still am broken inside.

    I simply cannot trust.
    It's not you; it's me.
    My trust can't be broken again.

    So don't ask me to trust
    'Cause I can't do it.
    I'm too scared to trust. (Report) Reply

    Another 9 year old, one and done, juvenile poem gets selected to show-case. So many good poets on this sight are being slighted! C'mon, PH, put some thought into this! (Report) Reply
