Being Human

This is a really special poem about trust, one that (hopefully) everyone can relate to. Worth the short read.

vulnerability lies
in dependence
reliance is a risk
such is life for
we social beings
biographies told
in tales of trust
joys often tied to
trust reaffirmed
agonies grown
from its painful
miscarriage

but poor is the
life who in fear
closes down from
relationships
withholds its trust
for in final analysis
that is the one
and the only thing
we own of value
sufficient
to let us invest in
that most sublime
human exchange
of risk for reward
