It Doesn’t Take Much

It doesn’t take much to shake confidence.

Brick by brick, you structure a world with truths and practices you trust are best—


guaranteed with positive outcomes.

And then the slight shift,

the murmur of doubt.

It doesn’t take a crushing blow—only the soft winds of uncertainty,

the weighted air of disappointment. And collapse threatens.

  1. I’m Catholic and grew up in the 50’s. It doesn’t take much for the guilt complex to settle in for a good stay for no real reason. 🙂 But, I work on it every day. 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
