Never I thought all is white and black.
Said people, if you trust-
broken heart is what you will be left with,
but I said, for every broken trust-
i will find ten another
For my trust is not on a man, but on mankind
and one is not whole, but an isle
in the land of Atlantis
Each small piece of trust broken
leaves me a little hollow
but like a ball thrown down
bounce back, I will.
A forfeited smile, a sublime betrayal
will never break the trust
for the forest is not a tree.

 

This is for you, my friend - the trust you broke today will make place my trust on others with more confidence, and I will keep doing it till I am the last man standing... I promise to myself that betrayals will never take me down, but will make me bounce back harder...

Awesome lines!
And the idea is great. Its hard to find people who can get up after a fall. But of course I'm talking to a biker :)
take care.

Good that it wasnt titled...absolutely loved it. I've had my trust broken a few times too...and dont know, i guess its the human spirit that makes u wanna trust again, even when ur mind keeps telling u not to.

Sometimes when you set out with a negative thought broken heart is what you may find...but cheer.
beautifully said - **but like a ball thrown down
bounce back, I will.
A forfeited smile, a sublime betrayal
will never break the trust**
May you bounce back and stay on top....
