The hindrance of doubt…
Held to ransom
by the doubts that seed my thoughts,
and confusion often aches a heart that’s true,
trying to liberate the truth
within inexplicable circumstance,
the paths of too many alternatives ensue.
Hesitation is a dead man’s game,
lost, the opportunities afforded,
and doubts just make bland the colors at hand,
muddied waters no clear paths seen,
barefoot on the sand,
while the fiddler plays, as ‘chance’ burns.
Doubt is fear in sheep’s clothing,
and all possibilities require risk,
for sacrifice is our investment, our acceptance,
when we aspire to transcend our lives,
in our pursuits of dreams
and the world we envision.
Let doubt be a warning,
a message to look deeply with open eyes,
and then with confidence move forward,
take the opportunities and make them our own,
for if we do not, someone else will,
as faith in ourselves will always lead us to prosperity.
