Whom do I Trust?

First we trust family

The people we know,

Then we trust friends

The family we choose,

We then look to God

For signs and a purpose,

But then over time

The heart batters and bruises.

Gone are child-like innocence,

Faith to move mountains,

Gone are the days

When anyone was your hero.

Love turns to hurt, bitterness, and scorn,

And we drown in it all

Searching for a beacon of light.

“Be sure of what you hope for,

Certain of what you do not see,”

“Pain comes in the night

But joy in the morning.”

And as words wash over me,

I come to understand

“My God will never leave me

Nor forsake me.”
