Poem by Juliette Sebock


I believe

I say it as an affirmation,

stepping from the train tracks

to take in a new city,

Christmas just a far-off spot

on the horizon.


I believe.


I believe in magic.

I believe that wishing for something

might just bring it into being.


I believe that you can bring goodness

into your life just by believing that you can.


I believe in love.

I believe in love at first sight,

in lifelong loves, in soulmates,

soup snakes.

I believe in life after love.


I believe that all will be forgiven

or at least forgotten, too far past

to hold a grudge against.


I believe

that your dreams and visions

and hopes and goals can come true

with a bit of hard work and pixie dust,


I believe.

I believe.

I believe.
