half believer

flute and music notes

some times i believe
of a quarter
of a third

other times i question
of a quarter
of a third

some beliefs are too beautiful
to question
[what if reasoning
makes them bland
even, wrong]

some questions, absurd

between, around
belief and questioning
there is a narrow path
unconstrained by time
and on this path
i shall be free
to surrender
unstained by belief
unbothered by reasoning

till then
i remain, proudly yours
a half believer

accept my half belief
or not
in the end
you will
[have to]
accept me
when i surrender

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for this beautiful poem. It causes us to question beliefs, non-beliefs, and sincerity, all leading to a place wherein we may not get our questions answered, but we may certainly come closer to having our answers questioned :).

    All good wishes,
