The doubting thomas
The questioning
Of certitude

Doubt as such
Is not negative
Nor positive

It is the question
Of an inquiering
Mind

I doubt
for that
I am

Doubt as lead
Doubt as fall
Doubt as status quo

And yet
Blessed those
Without doubt

Doubt in relations
Doubt in profession
Doubt in science

And thus
Blessed those
Without doubt

A doubtful existence
A doubtful destiny
A doubtful life

And hence
Blessed those
Without doubt

for context: John 20:24-29
