A Haiku - Mistrust

Updated on February 22, 2015

Does trust have to be earned, even regained?

Does mistrust come before trust? Should it?

I want to trust you.

Gosh, I really do want to.

How can I learn to?

Trust, mistrust, trust again?

Have you really earned my trust?

Is enough enough?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I want to trust you.

Gosh, I really do want to.

Can I learn to now?

      38 years I trusted my man with all my heart. I didn't have a clue what he was up to. He planed for 10 years. He was the one who didn't trust anyone, yet he was the one who couldn't be trusted.

      Would I ever trust again? Probably, because that's the way I am. Could he ever be trusted by anyone? Hell no, that's the way he is.

      Now you have to trust your own heart.

      Good hub, makes one think

      Trust springs from infancy when the child is nurtured by the mother, if that is violated then a person has a hard time trusting someone...a great observation on the complexity of man Perspy...

      Once trust is gone...very hard to recover.

      Good question. I think there's no direct answer to who we can trust and even to how can we be sure we can trust. I know that I have never trusted any strangers and if a stranger became a friend it sure took a long time to have any trust and even then there was always some doubt unless we became the closest of friends. Words for thought - trust, mistrust, trust again? Because how many times have not people been betrayed by their nearest and dearest...
