Never Over-Ruled By Doubt


I am glad today,
I was never over-ruled by doubt.
And made mistakes I did to admit.
For myself to figure out and not to quit.
Many times I fell but got up to walk tall.

So many today have betrayed themselves.
With a seeking for answers from someone else.
To awaken to realize,
Those they followed had a love for dead-ends.
And sought to beat their heads up against brick walls.
