Naiveté

1378480_550429245030528_1158395361_n

I have a certain naiveté
even after all these years.
I find it hard to accept
that others can be cunning,
devious, even ruthless,
thus fall into the trap again.

I don’t think it is because
I need to be a victim but rather
have retained a child-like
wonder of the beauty of the
world that our Creator has
given us.

Lord, protect my naiveté
and deliver me from cynicism.
Let me remain a believer
in the Tooth Fairy
and the goodness of man.

    I think naiveté is what keeps the faith that there is good in everyone. If we stop believing in that what would be left? I believe.
