In The Corner Of My Mind

In the corner of my mind
There's a doubt.
I try to keep it in
But it wants out.

I build up walls around it,
Try to hold it in,
Forget that it is there
But it won't let me win.

That corners forever lurking,
Whispering to me,
"Let's have a get together,
Come in and see."

But doubt kills dreams,
Beliefs are undermined.
So I am leaving doubt,
In the corner of my mind.

Love this. Excellent writing. Ty for your comment on my "Nurses" poem. Tell your daughter it's a truly rewarding field. I've just made my 26 year of nursing. Sincerely, Tammy?
