Seeds Of Doubt

Every time you ask me
another weed takes sprout
Evil whispers in your ear
casting seeds of doubt

Careful now be my dear
don't be living in your doubts
Watering a garden green
full of useless sprouts

A wind blows cold
across your heart
From glaciered mouths
of love so stark

To wedge away
they have made you dark
For inside they attack
your sense of sacred ark

And nourished in your heart
only out come famished thoughts
And once the trickle starts
watch a raging river wrought

So my love take the time
to heed and weed, not be bought
Cast out before the wind
has time to set, and suffice your thought

    True. Once the seed of doubt takes hold, it's hard to uproot. So one must take preventive measures to guard the heart. (Report) Reply

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
