Trust : That Five Letter Word


How much do we trust in thee

When doctors tell their tale to me

When climate changes are forewarned

And talk of warming being formed

Do we trust our fellow-man

Or do we tend to hold our hand

Up to our ears, we can’t accept

They all have secrets they have kept

Priests and Pastors they have done

Disgraceful things to many sons

In this our world so large so free

I want to know to trust you see

I want to know the doctor’s mind

Will cure our ills so we can find

Some rest, some peace from all our fears

To live a good life through our years

We want to know our homes will be

Safe and sound for you and me

So many issues in the news

We cannot let them change our views

We need to trust our thoughts it’s true

There is no other way to view

Our world, our lives, our fellow-man

Trusting has to be the plan

Without some trust we would become

Sick and sorrowful, always numb.
