Trust?

#writing201 assignment for the day…”Trust” as an acrostic with internal rhyme…yep…this was a challenge!

 

Trust?

Constant posturing, self-need driven bickering
Only leaves us all bleeding, endlessly needing.
Misusing our Book as a hook – to injure other’s belief –
Marking those who are in and those shrouded with sin.

Unless the flood of our blood ceases, quickly decreases
No body will share, even dare to come needy.
I will be me and not part of we.
One trusting no one is perfectly done.
Never to sup, sip a cup filled with love.

 

As a member of and a leader within the United Methodist Church, when I hear the word trust it brings about many very positive images. However, our current denominational mood might well be seen by some as one of mistrust or lack of trust of one another. This saddens me. The most important part of this poem to me is the acrostic that calls us to something greater.

  1. a great response to the prompt. One small issue though…third line of your acrostic begins with a “T”…I think you might be wanting an “M”? Perhaps, “Misusing our Book as a Hook”?

    1. Thank you…you were absolutely correct. That was an early version when I hadn’t worked out the acrostic yet. Eventually settled on “Making” but your suggestion is much better. Thanks!
