~I Believe in You and Me~

~Prologue~

I shudder to think we didn't have anything to believe in...

~Hope Lives~

I'm just a bleeding heart liberal, no fault in that, but nobody's ever accused me of being a rat

I believe in challenging the dynamics of life, I've been doing that for ten years as a wife

I believe in a structured environment, as long as I don't ever have to pay rent

I believe in freedom of speech, as long as others practice what they preach

I believe in love at first sight, even if we have to pretend it will last through the night

I believe in giving children their space, as long as they remember their place

I believe in attending the church of my choice, without someone trying to silence my voice

I believe in a three course meal and dessert, at least five day's a week wouldn't hurt

I believe personal hygiene is a necessity, that is if you plan to keep me

I believe in re-examining our history, so we can learn how to treat oneanother with dignity

last but not least, I believe without a doubt, if we work together we can wipe hatred out

regain equality, embrace simplicity and recover our unity, yes! I believe in you and me
