Pure Passion

May you believe and truly. 

You are not mad or sick,
you are not confused,
you are not lost, and no
lines exist to you
(as should none).
It is the passion in youโ€”
it burns hot, within,
and you feel it,
and let it. You let it.
You chase the fire,
as it stirs your nights
and caps your days.
You see endless
possibilities
and dream, boundless.
You look up more,
speak little, and when so,
you speak gratitude,
and with kindness.
You look up and dream.
You forgive easy,
forget fast.
You live, you live, you live,
for your seconds
are pure passion,
and seconds of completion
when you experience it all,
when you let go,
when you are and win.

Let your passion burn,
let it stir your nights,
and cap your days.
And as you glide over
your clouds of dreams,
may you hold firm to life.
And should you believe,
may you believe truly.
And should you fall,
may you gather yourself
up, may you rise,
as you are meant to.
Dream onโ€”
Oโ€™, may you dream!

I spent the past few days travelling and with family. I couldn’t share anything then, but I am back. See you in the coming hours!

I hope you find meaning in my words…
