Trust No One

By Seánna age 13, Coláiste Feirste, Co. Aontroma

Trust no one

That’s what I was warned

I trusted my sister

But she threw me away in scorn

Trust no one

That’s what I was a told

I trusted my uncle

But all he told were lies and tales

Trust no one

That’s what I was taught

I trusted my mentor

But he tore me apart

Trust no one

That’s what this town of deception told me

But now I’ve been abandoned

Who do I trust when there’s no one left?
