Trust

Like a dove soaring through the sky,
trusting the competence of its wings,
so should we trust each other.
For how anxious and disturbed we would be
if we did not trust our lungs
to filter the air that we breathe! 
 
We lay at night trusting the mattress we sleep on,
or else no slumber would we see.
How noble a deed it is
to trust that good fate is ahead of you!
If we should live all days
dreading the worst,
we would live eternally in dread,
wouldn’t we? 
No. One would rather live
with a heart calm,
expecting the best,
not fearful of the rest.
 
And if
the worst were to happen,
what a tragedy that would be!
But until the tragedy unfolds…
if it does unfold –
why anticipate a thing so vile?
 
Why burden your soul
with apprehension
of the worst?
Do you not want a calm
and happy heart?
 
Trust, dear lover.
Trust your future.
Trust that it will give you wings,
for a person becomes what they think!
So think the best
so you may speak the best!
 
They say “speak what you seek until you see what you’ve said”.
Yes!
Speak it…
into existence!
But do not speak of your fears,
lest you bring them to life!
 
Trust, dear lover;
and you will gain the freedom to soar…
to soar with a heart;
a heart so serene!
