Where Does One Find Trust?

Where does one find trust?
When each bridge you’ve built
was broken and burnt by those
whom you believed would be
your source of solidarity.

Where does one find trust?
When the ship to which
you trussed the sails of Hope
was wrecked upon the coast
of cold and barren apathy.

Where does one find trust?
Has it gone to ground?
Is it even now hunkered down
deep within its lair that lies
somewhere beneath one’s self-belief?

Instead, should we just
turn the words around –
And rather than ask
‘Where can one find trust?
Ask whether trust wants to be found…

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
