Phoenix

Rating: 5.0

I wonder why a trustworthy
Seldom trusted!

Is a trusty so enigmatic to you?
Is his honesty a zoo bird?
Is the Candor so tough to trail?
Is his truth a stodgy and you discard?
Is his glory, unbearable to the sight?
Is it your inferiority put on the desk?
Is it the fear, you can never pursue?

Is it you don’t have truth inside to trust upon?

A thought provoking poem written with fine imagery used and nice tone of words...Like any other values, trust is being earned from what you have planted...If you have planted the seed of honesty you'll profit the virtue of trust and respect...Thanks for the wonderful read. A phoenix burns itself and from ashes it comes back to life...10+++

VIDI, it is a good poem! It gives us food for thought! We must first learn to trust ourselves before we trust others, - and finally God! Thanks for the New Years message sent earlier! - Raj Nandy

An excellent poem, Vidi. Very often a 'trusty' is not recognized as such from the beginning. Like the phoenix, truth and honesty eventually 'rises from the ashes' to reveal itself. Thanks. A 10. Richard

This is a very nice poem which talks about characteristics which are unidentified in a person as the qualities which are to be appreciated are seldom appreciated in this worldly world where goodness is turning to be rarest of rare qualities.
