I Believe In You.

I Believe In You (mp3)

(And just for those who are audio-averse… look, a transcript!)
Even unicorns need to be believed in!

Yes, I believe in you…
Even when you’re whiny,

And so frustrated and cranky that you can’t stand yourself.

I believe in you.

Even when your disappointment bleeds out onto your desk, getting your keyboard so sticky that the caps lock key refuses to release, and you’re shouting at everybody.

And when that damnable caps lock key, and your own self-sabotage make me want to shake you and yell CUT IT OUT ALREADY, DAMMIT!?

I still believe in you.

The days you’re down to your last seven dollars and twenty-nine cents, and thanking God for overdraft protection?

I believe in you then, too.

When neither of us knows exactly what your gift is, and we can’t quite imagine how you can package it for the world, or who would buy it?

I believe in you.

Because even in your darkest moments (and my own cranky, snappy, judgmental moods), I *see* you.

I see that spark, that light. I see that ember within you, waiting for its chance burst into a brighter, bigger life.

It never goes out, you know.

That spark may dim, and flicker, and that flickering may will scare you. And sometimes it just doesn’t seem bright enough to light the way, I know….

But it won’t go out.

It can’t.

That’s not its nature.

That’s not *YOUR* nature.

Its nature is to keep shining. Your nature is to keep breathing on it, so that spark can shine brighter.

You can’t help but breathe.

And that spark inside you?

It can’t help but shine.

You know….
if something is inevitable,
you might as well believe in it, right?

I do.

I believe in your spark.

I believe in you.
And I believe in me, too.

It's A Flourish!Comments are welcome.  Really. It’s ok.
And it’s ok to be quiet, too.

It's Another Flourish!
