War Against Doubt - Poem by Ndrek Gjini

War Against Doubt

Every time we believe, we extend our lives a little bit.
Whenever we doubt, gravewards we go.
In this, belief/disbelief time-game
Old Age waits at our door,
while Death lies like a fox in ambush,
ready to lead us to the grave’s gate.

Not in vain an old man said:
“Do not open the door to doubt
in order that Death you may keep out.”
