In search of passion

by Joy Sy

For once in my life
I wish to find passion
To live it, to breathe it
To revel in it

To burn with such energy
To immerse in its power
To neither fear nor hesitate
Unhindered by convention or faith

TisÂ’ is a dream
Kept hidden and banked
Freed only at midnight
Secreted away
Unseen by light

A dream that keeps my sanity tethered and whole
A dream I protect with all my soul

For I know, deep within my consciousness
When it dies, so shall I

Much truth and wisdom here. I really like how you've expressed something metaphysical. Welcome to Pathetic! :o)

One can definitely feel this while reading it...wonderfully expressed and very well done.
