"Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you."
Poets United Thursday Think Tank #71 Energy
Also linking with dverse
There is a certain force that moves us
like wind waves a flag,
and the tide pushes forth an ocean.
The energies of adversity,
and our true passions
make their way through us
one way or another,
driving us onward,
or pushing us down.
Their power can make us stronger,
and motivate us
in ways that no other pressure can sway us.
Like the winter cold
makes us shiver,
and the heat persuades
us to thirst,
I have found in my life, that the struggles I have faced have been a driving force in what I choose to do. In those difficult times I have also been moved to find a way to better cope and survive. I think even in my childhood, when I first started writing, that is what motivated me. I can still remember writing my first poem, and why I decided to sit down, and put my energy into it. There was a difficult situation going on at the time, and somehow that moved me to write. The flickering flame of that heated moment sparked me on a journey that has continually been a comfort for me in life. The energy of life's hardships, and constant change, have hurled me forward in my passion for writing time and time again.
