Trust In The One That Matters
Somewhere along the way
On a cold and wintry day
I lost the ability to trust
Iíve tried and tried since then
To find it once again
Suddenly the light went on
As I began to see
The solution is solely up to me
Human beings they falter
As they were meant to do
Even the best of us
At times, are incapable of being true
To place your trust in mere men
Or women for that matter
Sets one up to fail
I for one am tired
Of writing such sad tales
Intuition steers us
In the right direction
If only we will listen
To the still small voice within
Taking time for solitude and reflection
As we quietly go within
Learn to trust your instincts
To thine own self be true
The answer is quite simple
Place your trust in none other, than you

to put my faith in God alone, for people will always fail you. Reminds me of a line in a movie that I can't remember the name of: "Mister, there's only 2 people that I trust. One of em's God, and you ain't the other." Trust is a very fragile thing, but forgiveness gives us strength and power. It doesn't, however, mean we have to invite someone to hurt us again. Very good insight here.

Has your inner voice ever let you down, sometimes it's not heard in a loud voice, but it never fails you.
However, never close your heart and soul to another voice that can also be heard,

MC As I read your comments it ocurred to me that I had probably left the most important voice out of the equation, being GOD. Thanks again for your wisdom and comments.

Yes, Clive my inner voice never fails to let me down, WHEN I LISTEN TO IT! Knowing me as you do, do you think it's very likely that I will close my heart and soul? Not me, just tweaking my perspective a bit. Thanks for your comments.
