Believer

I want to be a believer
I want to believe that good things can and will happen to me.
And just because they happened, they are not going to go away.
I want to believe that my present and future are not dictated by my past.
I do not want to punish someone for someone else's mistakes
Or for the lessons life determined I should learn.
I wish to be naive, I want to believe once more.
How do I let go of fear?
How do I learn to trust once again?
To have faith when an aspect of my life
Has always broken me without fail?
What is going to make this time different?
I feel like I am going to fall
From a greater height this time
I do fear I won't survive
But I know I will.
I wish this is the last time I have to trust and not see it break
And pray what's in my life is here to stay.

Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see - The Holy Bible.
