#20 of 365 – “doubt”



I’m not gracious

although I pretend to be

when clients don’t show up

and can’t pay their fee


I am selfish and angry

when something goes wrong

I want people and things

to be where they belong


I don’t like when I have to

act like it’s okay

as I add one more bill

to the bills I can’t pay


but what my resentments

are really about

is my faith sitting on

a foundation of doubt

that everything, eventually

will all work out
