Doubt - Poem by shimon weinroth

When clouds of suspect gather
They smother beliefs,
Lay to rest, truths of before,

Create a vacuum
Of mystery and insecure
Till, new beliefs, hover and replace

Still some doubt remains
Till another day, recycled and reformed,
Become stronger than before

Some say to doubt is human
To question and search even more
Molecules and atoms have no thoughts

So too the God who made us talk
Sing and babble, is without a doubt

Beliefs came from somewhere
And doubt were born in everywhere
Ideas and concepts flourished

Till doubt crept in, and walked about
Dressed and cloaked in disbelief
