|Currier & Ives|
When I tell you I believe you
I am not talking about faith
There has been no leap, my feet hold.
Grounded in my experience
I know you and thus I trust you.
I can’t believe I said that! O
How easy to say believe—like
Love—a word overused when not.
Acted or lived—never over-
I’m done using words not born from
You need not believe me. Come here
If you wish. Come closer to meI won’t shield myself from you.
Inspired by today's Richard Rohr's Meditation on Trust.
