Without Trust


Without Trust it is impossible
To reach out and connect
For always there will be a barrier
That stands between
Hindering full disclosure.

Trust is the unseen link
That most people do not give freely
When there has been a breach before,
And it is withheld understandably
Not easily released and hard to restore.

Trust is a gem of great value
Esteemed as a contract, signed by the heart
Given at a great risk of much worth as life
That its care is expected
And its loss... breeds strife.
