Doubt and Fear

“…we should be unafraid to doubt,”

— C. S. Lewis

“What if…?” The famous thinker’s friend;
For great ideas of every kind,
Begin, “What if…?” and in the end,
Creative gemstones may be mined.

Beware of doubt, the siren song!
It’s poison to artistic souls
Don’t ever ask, “What if I’m wrong?”
Trust in your heart, your self, your goals.

An inconsistency? Why, no,
Imagine freely, pretty thoughts!
Ask anything you please, but don’t
Dare ever question what you’re taught.

Prompt: Write about doubt.
