Doubt is a poison
that is a storm in your soul.
Clarity is the treasure that you seek.
Close your eyes,
free your mind,
free your soul.
Doubts no longer
Do not surrender to the noise in your head
let your thoughts dance,
let your thoughts create,
let them just be.
i understand the thrust of your poem...i do think doubt can be not necessarily a bad thing...i may be a bit odd in that but...but i understand there are certain things where clarity makes for a good foundation...just dont want us to ever get away from asking questions...ReplyDelete
Oh boy, the noise in your head. It's just always there, isn't it. Clacking away, chipping at your spirit. What I wouldn't do for a clear head...ReplyDelete
faith is the substance of things hoped for... yet i agree with brian too, that the freedom to ask questions is a good thing.ReplyDelete
Clarity would be nice but it's not often attainable. Doubt? I suppose it gets a bad rap though I have more familiarity with it than certainty. Doubt, I'd like to think, is the first step to clarity.ReplyDelete
I'm with Kitch. If I could quiet the noises in my head, just for a moment, I imagine it would be bliss. But, no doubt, they'd be back, and maybe there's a reason for them ... other than depriving me of sleep, I mean!ReplyDelete
Brian, asking the questions is good ... My thoughts were more on being paralyzed by doubts ....smilesReplyDelete
kitch, the noise is like a background noise isn't it?ReplyDelete
Leslie, I agree too... :)ReplyDelete
Doubt the first step to clarity-well said, Belinda.ReplyDelete
Stacia, those noises...quieting them is bliss,isn't it?ReplyDelete
Thank you, Mama Zen :)ReplyDelete
Nice. I believe doubt has to come before you can know clarity. As uncomfortable as it is, it is necessary.ReplyDelete
Rudri, it is a part of the process.ReplyDelete
