Trust has caused many hurt,
Distrust, much more pain.
Love breaks, yet mends,
Hate breaks, crushes and ravages beyond reason.
Courage might leave scars,
Cowardice, an incurable wound.
Hope deceives, yet consoles,
Impossibility, untold restrictions!
Life tests, then teaches,
Death, teaches those it hasn’t reached.
Truth unshackles even hopeless captives,
Lies set the free in unbreakable chains.
Today’s our greatest gift,
Tomorrow, the cause of untold bondage.
Children are born adults,
And adults grow into immaturity.
