what is the meaning of trust


the word trust left my vocabulary a long time ago

it no longer exist to me from what i been through

from the time my sister betrayed me by sleeping with my husband

i trusted her

or the time my cousin stole my neckless which was given to me by
my late grandmother

i trusted her

and that time my mother went into my purse and stole 1,000 dollars of money i owned

i trusted her

'trust me ' he say
'trust me ' she say
'trust us' they all say

ashame i can't trust no one these days

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
