I cannot shake the doubts I feel. (Form: Saraband)
I puzzle through each waking day.
When I have doubts, I sometimes pray,
though does it help? I cannot say.
I often wonder, Am I heard
beyond the confines of my mind?
I recall verses from The Word
that promise "Seek and ye shall find."
Each day is like a brand new dance.
I seek but is it only chance,
my answers merely happenstance?
I cannot shake the doubts I feel.
There's little comfort with no proof
that anything I know is real.
Why must my God remain aloof?
How much easier it would be,
instead of faith, if I could see
the future and a plan for me.
I guess that's just the human plight.
We carry on and have to trust
that after darkness, there'll be light.
We'll face tomorrow 'cause we must.
