Slice of Life #15 - I Believe



Last year, when my students were working on The Slice of Life initiative,   I arrived home from school, while my high school aged daughter was working on a credo for English. 

The base word credo , has interesting etymology ( origins) . It is derived from Latin, and means "I believe", "To put ones heart" "A formula or statement of belief". I was so moved by Abhi's credo, that I wanted to share it with you all. 




I Believe

I believe in music.
I believe in the rhythm of the simple truth of words,
And the people who speak them;
But only once.

I believe in the ending colors of the day
And the new beginning in the songs of the birds.
I believe in learning,
Not in school,
But in mistakes,
And the comfort of hugs from the ones you love.

I believe if you do not pull the weeds
From the garden,
The flowers will never grow
And when you are caught between
Who you are
And
Who you want to be,
I believe
You find clarity.

I believe in embracing the future but,
Acknowledging the past.
I do not believe in god,
But I do believe in enlightenment,
And I believe that there is always

Something to be thankful for.
