I Believe

The Spirit Within Guides Us All

I believe
because I have faith,
or, perhaps,
because I have faith,
it is why
I believe.

I believe
that all are equal,
to love
and to be loved,
freely, purely,
without condition.

I believe
the time for hatred
is ending;
racism has no place,
and silence,
no longer an option.

I believe
change is coming,
regardless of creed,
we are one,
united, together,
we must stand.

I believe
for every tear that falls,
a smile is given;
for everyone without,
another can provide
until none are in need.

I believe
we all have a gift,
to be shared,
and to help,
if we only allow
our light to shine.

I believe
that one
can make a difference,
and if we act,
that many
can bring peace.

I believe
all things are possible
with faith and love,
kindness and compassion;
that the meek shall rise
and arrogance will fall.

I believe
the persecuted
shall be strong,
and silent no more;
eyes will be opened,
and hearts revealed.

I believe
the time is now,
and now
is the time,
for all to hear,
to act, and to believe.
