Trust (Inspired by "Harlem" by Langston Hughes)

Daniel Zhu, 10

What happens to trust vanished?
Does it reappear
Out of thin air?
Does it painfully regrow
like a half-alive tree?
Does it haunt you-
A ghost in your dreams?
Does it leave you as empty-
nothing but a shell?
Does it destroy you and
Crush you underfoot?

Or does it leave you wondering
If trust
Can be attained
At all?
