Passion’s Freedom

Emotions twirl in eddies

spinning in spirals that rise and fall

a whirling vortex of feeling

completely consumes the moment.

if permitted it flows in rivers of silver.

dams built to slow or stop the flow

create a backflow that floods the banks.

trees uprooted in the floods’ wake.

emotions felt deeply smooth out

the roughest rocks given time and toil.

the river will eventually flow unimpeded

Irregardless of my wishes.

learning that allowing it to be what it is

gives me a new freedom of expression

and prevents the blunting of my passions.

permission, an all access pass, given to be

just what I am here to be: me unimpeded.
