I Believe In You

───

I believe in our giving

I believe in it




                     Our glutted taking

                     starves a beauty in our giving













I believe in our autonomy

I believe in it




                     Our unsighted reliance

                     blinds the power of our autonomy













I believe in our bond

I believe in it




                     Our haltered distance

                     arrests the reaching

                     that has laboured for our bond













                     I believe in our love

                     our love ebbs

                     to buoy our stranded throes




                     I believe in You*

                     I believe in Me*

                     I believe in Now*




                     I will work to let the hurt of this risk

                     drop into the beauty

                     that holds our everything in flow
