T is for Trust

T is for the trust, embracing humans hold dear

R is for the rust, lacing truth often grey

U is for useless, her words never heard

S is for senseless, his violence absurd

T is for tense-less … after life, she deferred

“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.” Psalm 118:8 (NIV)

Here is my submission for Writing 201: Poetry Challenge – Trust.  It was definitely a big challenge expressing the theme of Trust as an acrostic which included internal rhyming. But although it’s early days yet, I am enjoying the exercises thus far.

NB: If you are participating in this challenge, please leave me a link to your Trust Posts in the comments box so that I can visit with you.
