The Reason For Doubt


The bear listened to the crow

As the crow told the story of time

It recounted the birth of the stars

The creation of the sky, land and sea

How the creatures came to be

The bear shared what he had learned with the rest of the forest

On the first full moon the crow returned to retell the story

This time it was to an audience of the whole forest

Once she finished the story, the crow flew away

Then came the snake

He asked if they weren’t there

How do they know it was true

The beginning of doubt and fear came to be

That’s when the world started doubting those who bring ideas

And trusting those who bring doubt

Beware of the snakes

They questions your dreams to death

And leave you with only uncertainty
