Trust has no tender
No exchange rate
No interest rate
No price
No resale value

Trust has no bargains
Takes lifetimes to build
But seconds to spoil
Trust is a foundation
And honesty, its roof

Trust is a dying race
When you find it
Treasure it
Hold it to you
Like a small child
Nurture it

Trust opens us up
To an awakening
The vulnerability
That unzips us
Can also unmake us

Trust is risky
And misplaced,
Itís tragic
But trust is necessary
Without it
There is no hope
