What a peculiar thing.
No, not a thing. Not a being. Not even an emotion.
It is the burning desire of our hearts.
Passion is the name we give to the reason we do and take incredible and crazy schemes.
It is the reason we stay up all night, trying to find the right lyric to a song.
It is the reason we spend hours of our time writing scribbles on a notebook.
It is the reason we plead our parents to buy us a deck of cards.
It is the reason we see every moment as a photo opportunity.
It is the reason we stop suddenly from what we are doing and write something in the margin of a page.
It is the reason we stare at computer screens until our eyes blur, trying to type code.
It is the reason we devote our time towards practicing day in, day out.
It is because of passion that we think of ideas.
Passion is why our minds wander to a different place.
It comes in many forms and differs in every person.
It is the reason why we are who we are.
Passion is a force. One so commanding that we will always bend our will to it.
Passion is why our eyes suddenly light up and we exclaim: “I have a idea!”
It is why we have games, books, art, music, poetry, technology, fashion, life.
Passion is the reason the world continues to grow.
It grows; grows with people, agriculture, life, opinions, art, creativity, thoughts, technology, smiles.
Passion is why we strive to live, breathe in and out, wake up every day with a grin.
Without passion, where would we be today?
I hope you enjoyed that little piece I made up.
I was in English class today and we were brainstorming ideas for what protesting means. It was at that moment when the word passion entered my mind. I thought about it and began typing my ideas down.
I only had a few lines before the teacher asked for the laptop screens to be lowered, but it was in the back of my head and I continued to think about it for the rest of the lesson.
Hopefully you enjoyed this writing piece as I have never written anything like this before.
