Thanks to Joseph Soloman for his powerful writing and delivery of this spoken word.
What makes Joseph Soloman's spoken word poem "A Shadown Of A Doubt" so good is not just its words, but also how he delivered them.
Here's information about spoken word from
"Spoken word is performance-based poetry that is focused on the aesthetics of word play and story-telling. It often includes collaboration and experimentation with other art forms such as music, theater, and dance. There is no mandatory manner in which someone should perform, however, there are aspects of the artistry that indicate it is, indeed, spoken word. Spoken word usually tends to focus on the performance of the words themselves, the dynamics of tone, gestures, facial expressions, and more. Poetic components such as rhyme, repetition, slang, improvisation, and many more elements of poetry can be woven to create an atmosphere the audience can experience."
In my opinion, this poem by Joseph Soloman serves as an excellant example of this performance art.

"This really got to me because I STAY having moments of doubt on if God hears me ramble throughout the night. It sounds dramatic, but I swear I stare at the ceiling and just wish that I KNEW whatever it is thats keeping me from believing that every word is heard by Him. It's scary... but just hearing people speak about the same issues and knowing that others doubt and move forward, despite their hesitations, helps me believe that my rambles don't actually go unheard like I think they do. You really help people Joe, and we all appreciate it. <3"

[quoting the poem] "Honestly, I've considered quitting, but where will I go? Back? There's no home for the living in the land of the dead....'Doubt your doubts and you will find that they are just as empty as the tomb I walked from.'"
This is so true!
