Poem by Juliette Sebock
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 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,
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.
that your dreams and visions
and hopes and goals can come true
with a bit of hard work and pixie dust,
