When You Talk

When you talk, how do you know
If the one you speak to is true
When you speak out your heart
What if they don’t protect you.

Worse yet is the trust they betray
When to someone else you know they speak
Knowing that it will come back to you
What do they expect, tongue in cheek?

Once that trust is tossed to the floor
How can you get back on your feet
When someone else wants to help you
Can you believe they won’t also cheat?

Take the time to gather your own heart
Pick up the pieces and try to be strong
When you are ready you will find out
Who is the one that won’t do you wrong.

    NOT SURE HOW TO RESPOND TO THIS ONE. BROKEN TRUST CAN HARDLY EVER BE REPLACED. YOU MANY TRY AGAIN BUT IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND WONDER WHEN IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. HONESTY IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST IN ANY RELATIONSHIP. BETRAYAL IS AN AWFUL BURDEN TO BEAR. LETS HOPE IT CAN BE REPAIRED AND HOPEFULLY YOU FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO TRUST AGAIN. HUGS

    It is so confusing, I understand. People are not all the same, but how can one know who to trust and who to fear? I follow my heart even though it might lead me wrong, I choose to follow my heart because at least I know what it feels is true.
