Magical Being

“Do you believe in magic?
I learned long ago
that it flows through my veins.”

Do you believe in magic? I learned long ago that it flows through my veins. There must be some, right? Surviving hell takes a lot of luck and determination. Creating life is a miracle. Just like destroying it is a tragedy. Like the stars and the universe, burning bright and infinite, always reshaping into something new. If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is.

  2. We can label it magic, or reality. If magic is different from reality, then how do we determine where reality ends, and magic begins? Which sense would we use? In “my” world its a blend of reality and magic, the one flowing into the other until they are inseparable. I see it as the leminscate (infinity symbol) with no beginning and no end. Now if you throw in the accidental and the miraculous… oh boy, how the plot thickens!
