Self Doubt Is A Thing


Have you ever wondered what life's all about
And your worth as a person do you often doubt?
Believe me on that you are not on your own
Self doubt is a thing that so many have known.

Circumstance of birth is like the luck of the draw
And for many at times life is like Murphy's Law
There are days when for you nothing seems to go right
And life at the best of times an uphill fight.

'Tis hard when your best does not seem good enough
But the bravest hang in there when the going gets tough
Those who glorify death believe in their own lie
The will to live greater than the wish to die.

Your better days in life to the forever gone
But the will it is in you for to keep living on
And keep fighting for life till your very last breath
And leave it to others to worry about life after death.

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
