Belief

Saddlebilled Storks at the Masai Mara in Kenya

BELIEF

Imagine
being born
into a nest
at the very top
of a tree

Coming
into your own
is capped
with learning
how to fly

Survival
allows nothing
but absolute
belief
that you can

Imagine
the power
of your potential
similarly
set free

If we can conceive it . . . and believe it . . . we can achieve it!

This is beautiful Naomi.
(I thought you’d gone quiet and must be on holiday or something. Only just caught up and found out that my email sub to your blog wasn’t working. Have resubscribed and hopefully rectified the situation.)
