Absolute faith isn't trustworthy,
for true faith comes and goes.

my heart knows
the right thing
to do,
but doesn't.

No surprise.

It's only
a stupid muscle
after all.

Not lies
I would never
Be anything but
To you

It’s never straight forward.
It’s always redirected,
people trying to save face, but that’s expected.
I’ve gotten so tired of the games,
trustworthy- the definition just isn’t the same.
I just wonder when it changed,
when words became so perfectly arranged.
I just want the real.
Don’t comfort me with a lie, because from the truth I’ll heal.
I’m ranting now,
but people have gotten so lost somehow.
People are known to beat around the bush,
maybe they just need a little push.
Get to it,
I’m not talking about shooting the shit.
I want the truth,
not the attitude of the petulant youth.
Get the point across,
so the truth can’t be lost.

Always question the tried and true until you try it.

Tried and True

With life
It is to hard ..

Lost my temper
Acted out of anger .
So sorry
I am not perfect
I am just a human being.

I need comfort
I need respect
I need to know
That I am valued
I need to.  know that  I can trust
You ..

The hands of a giver
Like our Lord
Flows like a river
Pushes us forward
We the receiver
Beings of today
Believe a deceiver
Dramas everyday
Dark days drown you
Trustworthy left few
You cry and pray
He listens what you say
Delivers from evil
Yet you're led by devil
In dark holes
You hide like moles
Found by the cops
Beaten from bottom to top
Heavy dose on drugs
You lay on wet rugs
Cry till your tears dry
It's about time to try
Kneeling down
Like a messy clown
Asking for forgiveness
From our Lord God
You yell out your grieveneses
And utter the good words
The prayer cleanses your soul
Sparks light in the dark hole
You feel the hand touch
Thankful so much
The evil being cast out
While your soul comes about
At the feet of our Lord
You deliver reverence
To the almighty God...

As humans
during our
first year of life
we are supposed
to learn
how to trust
other people
for the

but what are
we supposed to do
as we get older
and the hurt
and the pain
won't subside

what about
our learned
of trust
goes away

what about
when we
lose ourselves
and we are not

Erik Erickson's Stage Theory: Stage One of Eight

I'm the irreverent boyscout you can't trust that's no help
Cowardice and gluttonous
But hell can I start a fire.
I don't listen, I'm not nice
purity I don't recognize.
I do my own thing,
I never courtesy.
Oh damn can I scream at wrongs.
I'm the grungy kind of disloyal,
You know the sin of the unclean.
My face is never cheerful
And I'm rude to everything.

It happened.
I found your heart
and instead of keeping it
as my own,
I offered it back to you--
knowing that you might need
it far more than I.
You looked puzzled
and tried to make me
hang onto it
for safe keeping,
but I had to explain
that no, I am not
trustworthy enough
to have something so
in my care.
I wish I were...
I wish I could
hold it close
and keep it safe
and free from any harm,
but I fear
I would fail miserably
at such a sacred task.
So, I made you take it
from me...
told you to entrust it
to someone who
would guard it
with their life
and soul
and to the depth
of their very core.

As you walked away
your heart weighing heavily
in your hand,
your head hung low
from the sorrow
and enormity
of what I had
just confessed,
I didn't allow you
to see or know
that inside
that heart of yours
that I made you keep,
I had wrapped my own heart
and buried it deep
so that you would
have it always
to hold inside of yours.
You see,
I know
you will forever
treasure it
once you discover it
there one day...

It happened.
So hard
to watch you
walk away...
