Proverbs 3: 5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

You ask me to trust—a euphemism—
You command me to trust—but who?—him?
And what does trust look like, anyway?
I have reason and agency—
Debates of free-will—fruitless—
My role—clean up after this mess.
I sit here pleading—
Interceding for intervening—
Until I remember—that meeting
Decreed “No superseding”
These natural laws that create a closed system.
So if you’re out—you stay out—
And if you’re in—you stay in—
But if you’re in—then you’re in
Both in me and in him.
So I’ll ask once again—
Say—Who do I trust?
Oh wait—Why do I ask?
It’s only brain waves—just like any other lust.
It's me versus him--and you want me to trust?
