Doubt to Clear

Teacher says
Ask a question
Do simply ask
When in doubt
No matter how
Silly it maybe
Yet one feels
Embarassed to ask.

One such doubt
Leads to another
Doubts, doubts
And more doubts
These doubts like
A trash mountain
Keeps on rising
Reaching new high.

All the doubts
Of yesteryears
Will one ever be
Able to remember?
Some're forgotten
Few get cleared
Some never need be
Some still remain.

One final doubt
When life ends
Will all doubts
Be cleared?

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
