The Unfaithful Soldier

Trust is an unfaithful soldier

Built of the heartbreak and pain of others

Commitment is a dream of that soldier

A dream of a dream about the sanity of realistic expectations

Faithfulness is a promise to yourself that you cannot honor

Honor is an object of others and doesn’t belong in a selfish world. 

Fear is the loss of trust.  A realization that the soldier was real to itself. 

A realization that Trust was itself unfaithful.
