Is it a belief, a hope, an expectation?
Belief is an exaggerated expectation.
A conviction, an idea.
Hope is a mere peg to hold on.
A desire waiting to be fulfilled.
Trust is neither expecting nor holding on.
Trust is letting things be.
Never reflecting.. never suspecting
Never complaining of the betrayal
It is unadulterated acceptance.
A thing of the heart, not of the mind.
Trust is saying ‘yes’ in spite of.
Being vulnerable to hurt.
Trust is renouncing every shield, fighting no war.
It is a victory in complete defeat.
