Trust.

Trust is lost everywhere.


Trust is lost in the “best friend” who told everyone who your crush is,
Trust is lost in the “star player” that can’t make the game-winning catch,
Trust is lost in our homes, seeing your 4 year old brother trash your room,
Trust is lost in the doctor who said “Everything’s going to be alright.”


Trust is found everywhere.


Trust is found in the friend who hugs you when you cry,
Trust is found in the team player who helps you up when you get knocked down,
Trust is found in your 4 year old brother, who you love just because he’s your brother,
Trust is found in the belief that everything truly will be alright in the end.


We have nothing to fear.


There’s a common saying that goes like this: It will pass.


The gloomy storm above your head will go away.
The clouds will part for you.
The darkest part of the night is just before dawn.


But the sunshine has to fade too.
So stop.
Stop and smell the roses,
Before they go.


Trust will pass too.
Your closest friends now may become your enemies,
You may not marry your high school love,
But trust can always be found.
Here, there, and anywhere.
