Trust – Poetry

Hey, y’all. I’ve been missing in action for a few Monday’s and I have no excuse. I just didn’t feel like it. #MondayMusings is back tho! Today, I’m sharing a poem about trust, and it’s called “Trust”. I’m thinking I could be more creative with these titles but it’s all I got. Anyway, trust is the kind of thing that’s built over time and one crack in the foundation sometimes ruins it forever. But y’all already knew that. Hope you enjoy it!



I found a friend once

He laughed with me and told me every truth

Even the ones that pricked my skin

His voiced soothed the sting

So I loved him

With cement, I laid a foundation of honesty in return

Pouring and pouring until he could stand on it with confidence

There he stood when I broke a promise

The surface beneath him cracked

He fell into the distrust I created

Now he tiptoes around our faulty friendship

And no longer laughs with me

I'm Mariah. Jesus is my homie. I live in (and was raised in) the south. I am, as often as possible, actively grateful for my family because I understand their life giving power. Really dislike melodramatics. Really love reading and writing so much so that I aspire to be an author. What else?
