Who Can I Trust? (1989)


Who can I trust with my deepest secrets?
Who can I trust when my world falls apart?
When everyone's lying and deceiving
Who can i trust with my heart?

Should I trust no one but myself?
To keep my life I must be circumspect.
Keeping quiet, telling no one but God,
He already knows the effect.

I'll never believe the people again,
The people who have hurt me once before.
The saddest part is I'll never be trusting
Of anyone any more.

How can I be certain that I won't be hurt?
How could someone hide themselves so well?
When everyone's lying and deceiving,
How can anyone tell?

    I can relate to your poem.I REALLY ENJOYED IT. Must we continue to live in solitude, in fear of trusting and then getting broke down again? (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
