Trust in thyself

Trust in thyself

a past caresses the mind 

some may call it a mistake

Some address it as obsession 

some regard as the stubbornness of the protagonist in say


trust in thyself 

you did best 

what you could do at that moment

the past maybe a mistake 

but learn to never encounter again


trust in thyself 

about the colours you choose

about the choices you make 

one isn’t a future reader 

nor a tarot reader 

to play the cards according to mighty fate


trust in thyself 

about the sceneries you make

not thinking what you could do better

not repenting the decisions you made

the past already gleams in gold 

it surely can’t be erased 


trust in thyself

sooner realise to hold the reigns

Don’t let the noose loose

or swayed by winds around 

cause the decision of trusting others 

for the priceless life 

should be your greatest mistake 



trust me 

or don’t trust me 

trust in thyself……

    A good write S.
    With the spiritual side, I wouldn't want to trust entirely to myself in everything.
    But to have no trust in oneself is surely to be un-confident, not take a step in anything, just rubbish oneself, etc.

    • spilleronsheet

      So true Orchi
      Trust in thyself
      Trust in God

    • Teddy.15

      I think your last stanza says it all. A great message here, trust is a hard ball between geniune and untrustworthy. And there are so many ways it can be digested, thought provoking. I have certainly figured out who I can trust it's just the things in life that sometimes you have to trust or not. 🤣 Sorry spills I'm just going on now. 💖

      • spilleronsheet

        I love to hear your thoughts
        Don’t feel sorry dear Teddy
        It’s my privilege
        It’s best to realise to whom to put trust upon

      • L. B. Mek

        a faultless message
        championing, self-accountability
        and acceptance
        to the inevitably, chaotic experience
        of life..
        (a great write, thanks for sharing)

        • spilleronsheet

          Thanks Mek
          Life experiences taught the lesson in harsh way though

        • Neville

          ...... self awareness, insight & acceptance of what is, what's not and what maybe is key ... a very thought provoking poem indeed ....

          • spilleronsheet

            You truly summarised my thought
            Thanks for the kind comment dear Neville

          • Paul Bell

            I think if you asked a hundred people who they trusted, 99 would say between 2 and 3 I reckon.

            • spilleronsheet

              That’s true
              When it comes to trust we have only few to put trust upon

            • Goldfinch60

              So very true spilleronsheet, that trust in yourself can lead to a most wonderful life,


            • Vamsi Sudha

              Awesome Spiller !! Trust A wonderful feeling which should not be Rusted by time !!!

              • spilleronsheet

                So true dear Vamsi
                I wish the trust in oneself should never fade with time
                But actually should grow stronger with time
