Doubt


The desire to be free of doubt comes keenly 
graced; - without allowing it place reason in 
jeopardy one can believe in an ascendancy, 
whether fĂȘted or karma matters not - but for 
me the hegemony of ‘immaculate’ belief fails 
to see that others have reasoned theories to 
arraign blasĂ© states of everyone knows that 
anyway, a better or worse as commonplace 

So I must reason it into being to believe in it; 
I hear what you say but cannot bear witness 
until its part of that doubt-freed destiny there 
in the corner of my eye with real assurances 
it is as much a part of me as my thinking’s a 
cast iron alibi for discounting the dubiety
