Doubt is the absence of faith
Signifying a lack of trust,
a welcome sign to fear.
Self-doubt is the worst of it
As we become our block,
To growth and peace
We stop believing in the unseen
Forgetting Faith is the building block of life
Becoming doubting Thomas’s we stand in our way
Doubt comes as a whisper
Then manifests itself as chaos,
Bad decisions follow, retribution is regret.
We all know of doubt but barely understand the weight it carries until we live it. Its true meaning unfolds to us ever so slowly the older we get, and as our experience piles. It is good to overcome it before it manifests. Through the strengthening of our faith, practicing kindness and love to self and others.
