I believe (full text)

I believe in hustle over hype,

in praise over gripe,

in dedication over type,

and cold hard cash over swipe.

I believe in excellence over perfection,

free form over a set direction,

trusting your talent over micro inspection,

and true leadership over a rigged election.

I believe in heart and soul

over winning at any cost,

I believe that sometimes the goal

should be to get lost.

I believe that silence is golden

and that words matter.

I believe you’ve gotta know when to fold ’em,

and to block out senseless chatter.

I believe in red ice over yellow ice,

in integrity over shine,

I believe in naughty and nice,

and the indwelling divine.

I believe in practicing how you’ll play,

in speaking from the heart,

in truly seizing the day,

and truly playing your part.

I believe the only reward for good

hard work is being given more,

and that whenever I could, I should

hold open the door.

I believe in grit and grace,

in diversity and voice,

a sacred written space,

and always having a choice.


Being heard, stirred, and perhaps cured by life's many hidden images and the written-spoken word.
