Passions...... Pain & Pleasure


Passions…. pain  &  pleasure

Want to win, control, gain…..
Ego rules,
Passions run high
Reasons are subordinated.
Reasons followed as fear looms
Pain persists.


When her conscious turned to giving,
Passions take different shape.
Creativity and enthusiasm.
Heart sings.
Passionate about her work,
Joy and love flows.

deep message in the rhythmical undertone of this writeup. It is true if we leave the ego behind and just concentrate on our work we do better.

I really like them both and can relate to them both as well! Interesting how passion can take such different forms, isn't it?
