THE MOTHER OF FAILURE
(2/9/17)

doubt

doubt
is natural

doubt
should be
good

doubt should
lead us
to alternative
solutions

new
possibilities

instead
it often
cripples us

keeping us
trapped
in an enhanced
state
of inertia

unable
to act

letting
outside forces
act for us

act against
us

once
we have relinquished
the right
to make
a decision

we have
lost

maybe not
the day

but certainly
the years
