Helpless to know your belief is absent in me.
But what credit score would it take, for you to trust in me?
Strangers we stand, so I won’t blame you,
But give me a chance, and I’ll never disappoint you.
Even if you think the world is out to get you,
At least know that I am here to defend you.
I’ll keep your secrets safe, I swear to you.
And I’m not asking for reciprocating trust.
But it takes one to know one, so can I trust in you?
And do I sound like a counterfeit,
Pretentious in my rhyme of speech?
But that’s how desperate I’ve stooped,
Just to explain to you.
I’m good for it.
Don’t lose hope in people,
Not just yet.
