"I Am Magic"

by Tony Hassini


I am Magic.


I am as old as the human race.


Yet I am new to a newborn child.


In me, so many find joy, laughter, and happiness.


Some find fame and wealth.


I am the universal language and have no boundaries.


I have been an inspiration to medicine and the foundation to science.


Some think that I am a vanishing art... yet...


As long as there are children of all ages, I shall remain with you 'till eternity.


I am Magic.




(I wrote this poem in 1968 and published it in the Sorceror's Notebook. This poem was intended to express my feelings about what magic is to me.)
