Poetry:..100 percent..

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

I believe in you.

I believe in you

Though not 100 percent

—yet.

 

I believe in you

For what you can do

Right now.

 

I believe in you

You will find your joy

You will.

 

I believe in you

Even though this power,

Was not instilled in you.

 

It does not matter so much

The voices of the past.

They don’t stand a chance

Because your trumph card is this:

I’m finally starting to believe

In you.

 

That I finally can look at you

And smile when I do,

This gives me hope,

Hope I’m starting to believe.

 

Hope that I will do more

than just dream today.

Hope that one day I will

Believe the full 100 percent.

 

Today the door cracked opened.

I took the first step and decided:

I actually do believe.

I believe the most important part,

The very first 10 percent.

 

No matter it’s a little bit,

It is still belief.

I believe in beautiful humanity,

I believe in *you*.

 

Don’t lose heart at all.

Because as much as I believe

You can smile so beautiful,

(And I know you do this well)

Know you can also climb the charts to

100 percent.

 

Always believe. Always hope. Always love.  💕
