Early one morning...at about 3:00... I woke up and groggily made my way to my computer. I started typing. Without a single edit, I came up with a poem. Here it is:
I believe in the power of creativity
and the power of a Higher Being.
I believe angels all around me
are eager to help me in times of need.
I believe in my own powers of decision
and of making up my own mind.
I believe in perseverance
and not taking no for an answer.
I believe in my ideas
and I will not be discouraged by cynics.
I believe in friends
who believe in me.
I believe in the stroke of genius
and the Aha Experience.
I believe in my heroes
and emulate their courage in my life.
I believe I can defy the odds
and change the world.
I believe I can make a difference
with my own two hands.
I believe that if I believe
I give myself permission
to be happy in my heart
and strong in my spirit.
I believe in reaching out to the world
by expressing myself
in whatever medium
I freely choose.
I believe I can launch my ideas
with dedication and commitment.
I believe my ideas will be appreciated
by the people that really matter.
I believe everyone has a soul-mate
and a life-path to follow.
I believe that we are here for a reason
and that is to nurture our creative spirits.
I believe in a community of friendship
who share common ideals.
I believe in working together
and getting results.
I believe in clarity
and a blazing conviction.
I believe in passion
and an eagerness to work.
I believe in humor, laughter and joy,
especially when times are tough!
I believe in the fertility of the universe
and the abundance of opportunity for us all.
I pressed 1000 copies of this "Spoken Word" poem and now, there are only 4 copies left in my possession.
Files coming soon.
