Can we trust?

Can we trust?

Can we trust?

Can we trust the space you offer?
Can we trust the words you utter?

Can we trust the time decided?
Can we trust the form provided?

Can we trust your singular view?
Can we trust the treatment we receive from you?

Can we trust the way you perceive?
Can we trust you to sit, listen and receive?

Can we trust you not to leave another dent……in us….again?
Can we trust the system you’ve decided and provided
… will it actually be in our best interest…
… with our knowledge and guide?

Can we trust you to understand that sound is once, twice, three times as loud?
Can we trust you to understand that light, ‘that light’… there is burning, burning our eyes?

Can we trust you to provide the space to breathe
Can we trust you to understand that our senses are more involved- BIGGER?
Can we trust you to let us move away from you… that you cause the trigger?

Can we trust you not to deplete our hard fought for energy and vigour? 
Can we trust you to listen when we say we are tired…. and let us leave the room?
 
Can we trust you to give us time to form……form our own words…..it our way and not yours?

Can we trust you not to constantly correct when we misspell or stutter? 
Can we trust you to say what you are going to do and not just assume?

Can we trust you to understand that your correction……. may only be correct for you? 

Can we trust you to not magnify difference and constantly question our existence?
Can we trust you to leave us and let us decide?

Can we? Can we trust you? Can we decide?
