How Can I Trust You? (Poetry)

Artwork by: Beth Budesheim

How can I trust you?
I don't trust myself

I know my good deeds could easily be infiltrated with corrupt thoughts
I know my evil lies dormant...
Awaiting the proper environment to prosper
Ready to contradict what I stand for
Ready to break vows and destroy empathy

Should I deceive myself?
Deceive myself into immunity from the forces of darkness?
It might even last long enough to title my eulogy
But it would only be a concealment of facts never challenged by the lawyer

How can I trust you?
I don't trust myself

-Jon Chambers
