Distrusting trusting

I dislike the fact that trust can’t be trusted

I remember back when I believed myths before they got busted
It’s like iron oxidizing proves even the strongest of us get rusted
But before you think trust is just letting go with faith let me discuss it
Because putting trust in other people has only left me disgusted

I believe what I see, but how do I know what I see isn’t deceiving me?
For example take LSD, and you’ll really believe you see the imaginary
It’s like thinking you’re living freely when really everything is controlled to some degree
And this here is my decree, if you trust trust how can you believe in what you can’t really see?
But if you test trust, then your don’t really believe that real trust can really even be
So essentially we either distrust trusting or trust that trust can be trusted blindly

The dilemma for me is, how can you trust distrusting when you really can’t prove trust exists
My conclusion is this… where trust fails us our logic kicks in and in time we find that even our logic exits
That’s why when we kiss we don’t feel love in our lips when our lips sync
It’s our hearts that let us know that we can only really rely on our instincts
