On Passion: Some Ramblings

I usually don’t ramble on blogposts, because I enjoy privacy. The topic of passion, however, which surfaced with exceptional frequency recently is close to heart and demands release.

I have a lot of fire in my nature, too much perhaps. Passion to me, thus, is a channeling of that fire towards various interests in life, one of which is of course, writing, and am fortunate enough to enjoy it both as profession and passion.

Passion is that unseen force that ignites one’s soul, inspires one’s beliefs, and drives one’s actions. I cannot imagine how I lived those years when I had not known this fire.

Yet, like all fires, passion needs to be handled carefully lest it consumes us too fast; I too am still learning to moderate and achieve balance with a constant fervour that’s not too overpowering.

I encourage everyone, anyone who is reading this to delve into your self – what do you truly live for? What is it you seek in life? If you are not able to make it a full time enjoyment, find ways to have it part of your life, however little it might be. I believe you will find it has a marvellous effect on you. 🙂

Because one must live to truly live.

No, I Will Not

No, I will not
Lay down to bleed and die
Nor will I go off
Gently into the night

I know I am but human
So perfectly flawed
Shot down easily, a
Casualty of life’s war

Yet, I’d like to think
My beliefs are good
My falls forgiven
My passions true

So I’ll run the race
On stony paths awry
That when I arrive
I will see the light.
