I question doubt's friendship yet

Keep inviting him to my door.

Is he friend or foe?

Amongst my angst and calm

he always steals the show.

In times of decision, those hours of peace,

He wrestles my brain to its knees.  

Why for confusion he labors to please?

          I wonder if doubt is really just a gut feeling that will always come up in our decision making, and the fear of the unknown result. Great thoughts provoked here Augustus.

            I believe you are right. We do need to double check our decisions. Sometimes, perhaps a lack of confidence, doubt can take over. Thanks for commenting.

            When I am in doubt, its usually only because my Intuition is telling me that there is reason to have it..some things JUST ARENT Reality...the others are...its when we doubt the shit we have no reason to where we are fucked and its a rampant little sickness upon this Earth, unfortunately...good write Augustus

              Excellent point. Trusting your gut. I was on shaky ground here. Thanks.
