Credo

I don't believe in families
I don't believe in karma
I do believe in love and god
but I don't know what they are
or how they work
if they work

I don't know if the face in the moon is a goddess
But whatever it is
I still see a face in the moon
I don't believe in husbands and wives
but I try to for their sakes

I believe in fairies

I don't believe in growing old
I think that's your decision
The body falls apart and we disappear
The rest is

I respect death.

I believe in the truth of the individual
I believe in heroes
Nothing brings out cowardice or heroism more than standing alone
Humans are ugly in groups

I believe if Gaia exists and wipes us out
she'll only be showing her human side

But I don't believe that will happen
I don't believe a comet will kill us
or a fight between apocalyptic angels
or monsters or aliens or any other deliverance dream

I believe we'll do it
Same as we've always done it

Because it benefits us
And we're comfortable with that
so long as we don't look at it

I believe we make excuses
because we know what we are
I do not believe our genes force us at all
I believe we choose to be monsters

I believe I have had some small glimpse of what will happen when I die
And that's OK

I believe that anything is possible
I believe that life is beautiful

I believe in stories
I believe in a far country
I believe magic happens

It seems strange to me that I am still here
I find that hard to believe

But here I am.

That is utterly beautiful, and I couldn't have said it better myself.

In fact, I have tried and failed.

You are awesome, boot!

Words and the extent of my vocabulary are about to fail me again. This is beautiful and resonates very closely, more so than in any way I could quantify. I love it!! You have such an amazing way with words smokingboot. Once again you inspire me! Just beautiful...xxxx

The five percent angels dance through the world
leaving trails of lightness and hope.
Ninety five percent apes in the backwash of love
find it just a tad easier to cope.

Wear your wings with pride.
