Meerkat

Trust is fragile

Trust is weak

Trust is what keeps you from knowing me

If I trusted you,

You’d know my struggles and know I am stronger than I look

Equip and guarding a love God approves of

If I trusted you,

You’d know more than my name

If I trusted you, maybe we could be in love but because we know the cruelty of men

You will never know the things I hide

And I will never know your other side.
