Trust: reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.
My trust in people is shot to pieces. It lays shattered on the floor, a mirror reflecting all the hurt back to me. My eyes well with tears as I realize that you’re just like all the others that came before you.
Not quite lies, but false fronts. More insidious and deceitful. I fail to recognize them yet again, but only after I’ve opened my heart to you. I believed you weren’t like them. I believed you had my interests at heart. You don’t. You do not.
“Thus says the Lord: Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength.” Jeremiah 17:5
