The Risk of Trust

Poem by Salma Kreiser / Photography by Jael Falta

Fear has taught you

To hide in the shadows.

Too scared to risk

Being burned, being exposed.

Fear holds you down,

Restrained by your insecurity.

And holds you back,

Crippled by uncertainty.

But with light there is release.

Putting your pride on the line

In order to let yourself be seen.

Trust calls you out from the shadows

And even in the mess

Shows the beauty of your true identity.

Trust calls out your doubts

And replaces them with peace

In the middle of your uncertainty.

Fear protects,

Trust risks,

With a radiant grace

That covers your mistakes.

Fear doesn’t have a hold

When you have a hope

That pushes you to trust

Even in the unknown.
