Poem: Child-like Trust


At the hour when men slept
And deep darkness occurred
At a time when many wailed and many cried
At a time when life got tiresome and many wouldn’t dream a dream
At a time, when war was enough and diseases beat hard on men
On a day when complaints was a menu
And had a taste of what life would offer,
At a period when love was unstable
And cheating was the order for fools
At the junction where death was better than life
A little lad looked up and said
I trust you.
