Poem: Magic and Happiness of People

I believe in the incredible goodness of man.

Poem: Magic and Happiness of People
Melissa Cook

I believe in the incredible goodness of man. I don't believe in getting lucky or fate, but I do believe in forever; for other people but not for myself. And I think that's okay.

I believe in magic and I bought these glasses from the back of a comic book once to help me see all the magic people had inside them, but they didn't work, at least not for me. I couldn't see anything and then one day I lost the glasses.

But even if I can't see it I believe the magic is there. Because like I've written before it's important to believe in angels without miracles. Faith and hope are the foundations I stand on, that's why I'm so clumsy.

But I can't believe in everything, so I choose to believe in the good things, but for other people, because I don't think I should have good things. I always lose them, or break them and they are never the same.

So I give people magic and I envision them with happiness. They live their lives in the sun.

So I accepted bad things, but in a way that didn't make them feel bad. I turned the lonely to creativity and the sadness to ink. And I began to realize how beautiful life can be in the dark.

But some days there aren't enough pages and I feel bad. Like somehow I'm letting the gift I gave to myself go to waste.

But then I think of others and all the nice things they had and I wonder if they can see all the magic and happiness in front of them.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college.
