I am a defender of magic.
I believe in magenta sunsets and dew on new blades of grass.
I believe that youth is powerful and birthdays are for ordinary royalty.
I believe in loud laughter and in the joy that we create for ourselves.
I believe in people who are refined and poised.
I believe in sequins and in shining moments of summer.
I believe in understanding the abilities of human beings.
I believe in healing and in growing taller and swelling bigger.
I believe in hope and in the dreams we barely let ourselves dream.
I believe that things will be as they should.
I am a defender of magic--a very real kind of magic.
