I don’t trust humans
Why should I?

Same folks that make the peace sign with the index and middle finger
Use the same fingers to imitate a gun.

And when writing me a peace letter
Supports the biro tightly with the middle finger.

Why should I trust humans
Has my back only to stab me in the back.

I don’t have trust issues
I just don’t trust issues.

Even the best of men, I fear
Noah let mosquitoes into the ark, my dear.

If this poem makes me evil
Then it’s me just saying I don’t like my kind.

I don’t trust humans
Do you?

    Yeah, I do. Sometimes. As much as humans are humans, seeing the best in us can’t be so much of a far cry. However, when we see a spade, we’d call it what it is- a spade. ‘Noah let mosquito into the ark cracked me up’😂 there’s always the good, the bad and the bad.

      Yes, there’s always an exception to everything though, and beauty sometimes comes from ugliness.

      However, I’m still pained as regards some things Noah let happen.

      Even Noah and I could have had issue with each other. That’s to tell you how imperfect man is. Trust me, trust no man

    I wanted to air my opinion on the post but then again I realised, you’re really human, then I rested.

    I love this.

    Beautiful piece.

    Trust is like a ladder, it’s got stages…couldn’t fault Noah though cos to me the grace the guy found, he also extended: Moreover, mosquitoes weren’t the issue, man’s wickedness was.

      True.
      In addition, Noah’s actions were a follow of instructions.

    “Same folks that make the peace sign with the index and middle finger
    Use the same fingers to imitate a gun.”

    A shift in perspective, ay.
