Treasure Island

(brief renderings) Joe Fazio


This Is What I Believe


I believe in a new days discovery.
I believe, in the beauty of nature.
I believe, in the kiss of the rain.
I believe that true friends are rare.

I believe in charity, without recognition.
I believe, in extending a helping hand,
to those in need.

I believe, in preserving the dignity of humanity.
I believe in the innocence of children.

I believe that one, should never let their
heart, do their thinking.

I believe, in the goodness of humanity.

I believe, that true trust, is like interest
earned, on money in a bank... it comes
with the passing of time.

I believe in wisdom.
I believe in the beauty of a starlit sky.
I believe in promises kept.
I believe that America, truly is
the land of opportunity.

I do not believe, that most dreams come true.
I do believe, that dreams can lead one
to the path, of ones inner desires.

I believe, that many listen, but do not hear.
I believe in honesty and integrity.
I believe, in a mothers love.
I believe in a fathers pain.

I believe, in placing ones family first.
I believe that many successful people,
leave in their path, countless orphans
of success.

I believe, when the sickness is sadness,
laughter is the cure.

I believe, that a good work ethic, can
serve all of us well.

I believe in good wine and good friends.
I believe, in a time each day, to give thanks.
I believe in forgiveness.
I believe, if one can forgive a friend,
then surely, one can forgive family.

I believe in the power of the written word.
I still believe in hand written letters.
I believe the first cup of coffee in the
morning, is the best.

I believe...it's important to believe in
something you care about.

I believe, in sanctity of life.

I believe that each day of life, is
precious and a treasure of
limitless value.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
