“ In Whom We Trust ” – a pledge unyielding –

We’ll spend much of our life

Believing we’ve support,

Even who be cause of strife

And others who purport,

Want offer pledge unyielding

Yet fail recognize distort,

Despite discernable unfeeling

Considers ‘tis of import,

With a pledge ne’er fulfillable

Bidden by beguiling sort,

For if be trust ill affordable

Best one accepts negate,

That faux devotees find hide

In a dark they generate,

Till they detect credulous side

Of dim trust to postulate,

Would ne’er need don disguise

As sad side of man’s make,

Be ample cover for shady side…

 

Alas what trust you had,

Bore soon be brushed aside

Save be for those at ease,

With deceitful vow devised

May for a time succeed,

As a perceived guile denies

The false of it bares rust,

For held karma take a stand

On sham assured commit,

Yet ‘tis far from wonderland

Pledge adamant be must,

Tho man ne’er understands

Yet deigns find a love lost,

In a pledge but second hand

While one must learn to trust!

    • Thank you, my friend. I find your reflection most interesting, for indeed it was rather challenging. As well, to do so with the economy of words I favour, which this one did not quite achieve. To say the least, on one’s observation of man’s version and expression of trust, and love for that matter, it has taken me more years of life than I care to admit, to venture writing about. And, as a matter of fact, it wasn’t easy and did take a while to finally let the piece go in its present finished state. I appreciate you recognizing this, but not surprised coming from you my successful author friend. Thanks again Paulette. Jean-Jacques
