to believe.

i want to believe that the sidewalk curb won't always feel like the edge of a cliff

i want to believe that adventure can begin in an instant

and that you can fall in love in the course of an evening

i want to believe that as we age our faces more aptly reflect the caliber of our kindness

and that it was love. even if i was alone in feeling it.

that out of all this sadness and destruction. out of all of this world turmoil, good will arise. 

i want to believe all this (whatever this is) is worth it

oh how i want to believe...
