Bull Durham Credo

August 27th, 2009

I believe in the overuse and the bad intentions of the word love,
The emotions hidden in conversations,
The strong bond between best friends,
The unspoken but understood truth,
The simple smile from a good morning text,
The colors of the rainbow:
Angry, cheerful, happy, jealous, depressed, love,
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple.

But I don’t find myself believing in religion; because I can never believe in something I could never fully understand.

I believe in losing myself in my writing,
I believe in soda in the morning,
I believe in passion,
I believe in never fully growing up,
Night lights, piggy banks, teddy bears,
Sailor Moon, Hello Kitty, Hannah Montana.

Most of all, I believe in memories; because after awhile they’re the only thing that doesn’t change.

Note: This was a structured poem that I had to write for my Creative Writing class. A Bull Durham Credo is a list of the things you believe, but structured into the form of a poem.
