The Edge of Doubt

There’s always
that edge of doubt.
Trust it.
That’s where
the new things come from. If
you can’t live with it,
get out because
when it’s gone
you’re on automatic,
repeating something
you’ve learned.
Let your prayer be:
save me from that tempting
certainty that
leads me back
from the edge,
that dark edge where
the first light breaks.

~Albert Huffstickler
