Acrostic trust

Today’s assignment in Writing 201 is:
Topic/theme: Trust
Form: Acrostic
Device:  Internal rhyme

Once again I find it necessary to write two separate poems on the topic – an acrostic poem and a poem using internal rhyme.

My acrostic tells the characteristics of the man I love and trust.

The one who is:

Truthful,
Responsible,
Understanding,
Sympathetic and
Thoughtful

is the one in whom I trust.

Here's a man with a face you can trust!
Here’s a man with a face you can trust!

My second poem is a parent imparting wisdom to a child:

Trust has to be earned, you’ll learn,
to find someone who is true to you.
Someone who has won, my son,
the respect you expect in return,
the love you live to give
and deserve to secure for sure –
So, you see, it must
be she that earns your trust.
