I Believe in Breakfast

11 Jun

when I don’t know what to believe

I believe in breakfast

I believe the day is better

when you eat real food

eggs, bacon

fruit, toast

real butter

coffee, of course 

I believe  beginnings matter

food matters

despite all the changes in my mind

I still know

one dark day

God died

history paused

frozen with the greatest tragedy

all seemed lost



he came back

all alive, all new

and everything else was new, too


but first,

he made breakfast



the mourning is over

the darkness is no more

it is a new day


every sleep is a little bit of death

every morning is a little bit of resurrection

every breakfast is a reminder

we are alive




so good morning coffee

good morning life

have some extra syrup with those pancakes

believe good will happen today
