“Trust nobody”
The wind whispers

Pulling my depths into inhumanity

How is it that I, a soul incarnate
Shall walk the earth as a loner?

I was not created for this
For in trusting another
Do I fully live out my life and purpose

Am no island that I should bear
My necessities

Am an empiricist
Trust thou stranger and thou
Shall live and be human

The earth has spoken to my core

    I like the way this poem opens a dialogue. We want to trust, but objectively it’s dangerous; nonetheless it’s a human necessity. The problem, succinctly put: “To be sincere with the insincere is dangerous.” I can’t remember the source (Alice Walker? Audre Lorde? I know it was a poet.) The middle term in trust or not lies in another poet’s tool: true seeing. Observe, and see how it turns out.

  3. You are right! Trusting someone really is a hard thing to do;more for some than others but its as you put it’s human necessity’. Simply put, we put our trust in strangers from the day we are born!
