Belief

~ I will see it, when I believe it ~

he keeps saying he cares
to which i always retort…
well, you never show me!
i don’t feel it!

but maybe
i will never see it
until i believe it

i think maybe
we should believe
a whole lot more

maybe we should
err on the side of trust

why do we put up
a tough exterior?
one day it will all break

every color
shall turn to grey

so let’s get hurt
knowing we trusted
rather than barricade ourselves
never knowing
what might have been…

( I have categorized this poem in Relationships as well as Spirituality.
Step back and see how it fits into both)

    1. That is perfectly fine. Sadness is not necessarily a negative.

      Heartbreaks have been happening over the ages and are more painful because of trust.

      It is just a preference of what is
      less painful to live with…the hearbreak or the what-ifs.

  1. “Err on the side of trust” – I wished, oh how I wished more people would do this. Lovely poem Sonya, absolutely lovely!

  2. Dear Sonya,

    What a very nice poem. Thank you for it.

    We like very much how you flipped around the common saying: “I will believe it, when I see it.” Flipping it inside out exposes the wisdom that belief can be a wall or a window.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  3. Beautiful. This sums it up so nicely:
    so let’s get hurt
    knowing we trusted
    rather than barricade ourselves
    never knowing
    what might have been…

I would love to have your thoughts
