Reason to Believe
In Reason to Believe, Bruce Springsteen sings, “At the end of every hard-earned day / people find some reason to believe.” What’s your reason to believe?
I don’t have a reason to believe in anyone or anything.
I don’ have any reason to wish or hope or dream.
No reason at all.
for a few seconds
for as long as I can hold my breath
And then I let it go.

Awesome photo, and I love the sparseness of the poem. The image of a wish or a hope or a dream or a belief as a breath, that exists as long is it is held, and is dispelled when it can no longer be contained…beautiful! May you breathe long.
Eric! Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m knew to the poetry writing, so your praise means a lot. Many thanks again.
Liked your header image too.
Know the feeling! But! Wait for it! I can think of many good reasons to believe in you, who helped bring me back from the land populated by the dead.
