You Have to Believe

You have to believe
that it'll get better, it'll get good.

You have to believe
that the people who harm you will get gone,
the society that mocks you will disperse,
the authorities that hurt you will stumble
and the nation that exiles you will crumble.

You have to believe
that the fears you inherit will be washed away,
the anger that you are conditioned with will disintegrate,
the turmoil you feel within will disappear
and the madness in your life will finally clear.

You have to believe
that you are not alone in this cold and distant world,
you are not alone when you feel like a solitary soul,
you are not alone when you journey into the unknown
and you are not alone even if you find yourself without a home.

You have to believe
that you are just as good as everybody else,
you are just as equal in body, heart and soul,
you are abundance itself from the life you choose to live,
and you are joy, you are hope, you are a gift.

But if you choose not to believe
that things can get better, get good,
that is the decision you have made,
not your destiny, your kismet or your fate.
