A doubt if it be Us

A doubt if it be Us
Assists the staggering Mind
In an extremer Anguish
Until it footing find.

An Unreality is lent,
A merciful Mirage
That makes the living possible
While it suspends the lives.

    Just read 'A doubt if it be Us', really deep and thought provoking stuff. Hits you hard, that feeling of uncertainty and struggle. Mirages and realities, life and living, the contrasts are so powerful. Really enjoyed it, top notch poetry.
