Treasure Island

Sylvia Chidi

(Germany)

I believe in


I believe in having good friends
They keep you up to date
With the latest fashion trends

I believe in telling jokes
I want to laugh regularly
Until I choke

I believe in being serious
There is always an air
Of you being mysterious
Even if there is nothing there

I believe in good sex
It is a good form of exercise
Even though it can be complex

I believe in love
Be it from down below
Or heaven-sent from above

I believe in fate
It is not something you create
It just happens out of the sudden

I believe in luck
But only when it works
When it doesn’t I just mock

I believe in hard work
Not only talk, talk, talk
It is work that earns you the buck

I believe in you
But sometimes do wonder
If all the things you say are true

I believe in good food
Spiced with romance after
To lighten up the mood

I believe in making babies
Then turning them
To gentlemen and ladies

I believe in courage
Strength with sense and not rage

I believe in dreams
But not the ones that make you scream

I believe in God
No ones knowledge and power
Is that vastly broad

And last of all
I believe in me

If I stopped believing
Then life’s wonderful gifts
Would not be worth receiving

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
