Doubt

reach inside and pull it out
that emotion I know as doubt
hold it in your hand
get a feel
it's an emotion
that's oh so real
hold it a little longer
just don't scream
it's an emotion that's very mean
you don't like it
neither do I
it's an emotion
that never dies
yell, scream and possibly shout
it's that emotion
they call doubt
it rips you apart
and tears you down
till there's nothing left
but the ground
when it's done with you
that's the end
it finds another victim
and does it again

I love poetry and I love school and I am an English major because i want to bring the power of poetry to others like my teachers did for me.
