I Doubt or do I?


I am neither positive nor negative
I am a doubt for am I?
The cloud has a clearer distinction
Than all that humanity can offer
The cloud resembles more clearly
Than I could resemble myself
I am not my resemblance
I am not what I think I am
I doubt if I am unknown
For in that doubt I exist
I am the doubt that I doubt
For I cannot be too sure about that
Certainty is like a cloud resembling me
I can never know what I am
I am what I desire to know
That which is positive is judged
That which is negative is judged
That which is a doubt is unstoppable
If you say ‘darkness is the absence of light'
I'd say ‘light is the absence of darkness'
I am the absence of what I am not
What I am not is the absence of what I am
Existence maybe defined by its absence- ‘nothingness'.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
