Affirmations

by Amy Niggel

I believe in fairytales
and happy ever after.
I believe in angels
and in ghosts.
I believe in love
and its ability to overcome all.
I believe in fate
and its ability to be unknown.
I believe in love at first sight,
and that you can know a person's soul the first time you look in thier eyes, if you know what you are looking for
I believe in the wind,
and the rain
I believe in the sun
and the earth
I believe in fire,
and in passion.
I believe that each day is a new one,
unrestrained by the day before,
I believe that we can never reach tomorrow,
nor can we ever see yesterday.
I believe that life is beautiful,
reguardless of its physical form,
I believe that most people take for granted all they have,
because they can only see what they lack.
I believe that you can be loved and never know it,
and love someone and never let them know,
I also believe this is one of the things you will regret in life.
I believe you do not regret the things you do,
but you will regret those you didn't.
I believe in G_d,
and in country.
I believe in me,
and the power I have inside my soul.
I believe in you,
because I see something there.
I believe

Author's Note: yeah so this is just basically a random list of things I know, not really as poetic as I would have liked it to be but I think it still gets the point accross decently well. Don't be offened at any of it, just the ramblings of a child, nothing more. *As a note and a response to the comment below (in case anyone else was wondering) I was taught in an anthropology class that in some religions it is considered "Taboo" to write out 'o' in the word god when the 'g' is capitalized. I therefore tend to use an underscore so as not to offend any one who's belief system runs to that effect. Thanks!

you are a sensitive poet, Amy...and this listing is not the random writings of a child, but the opening to a lovely soul
