Believe by George Fairchild

Believe

Acrylic on canvas board, 14x18"



The world can be a crazy and cynical place…we are often confronted with misunderstanding and doubt…mistrust and suspicion…anger and hatred. It is exactly at those times that we need something to hold onto…to help put things in perspective…something to believe in…


Believe

Believe in compassion…in kindness and love…
Those purest of virtues…it’s what makes us special…

Believe in mankind and its capacity for good…
And in the inherent greatness that we all possess…

Believe in yourself…your gifts…your potential…
Never think that you can’t when you know that you can…

Believe in life and the wonders around us…
Take time every day to appreciate its beauty…

Believe in the future…that anything is possible…
Find hope in knowing that great things await you…

Believe in these things, but most of all,
Believe in your dreams…they really can come true…
