Today’s Prompt: What is a cause you’re passionate about and why?

When I write a novel, it comes from some deep, passionate place within my heart. When I write a poem, it’s because of some budding feeling or intriguing thought. So I may not possess the burning energy to end world hunger, or stop all wars, but when I write, I get big ideas about what it means to be human.

In this singing self,
Speaking of the passion flame,
my heart burns all night.

Here are 10 passionate feelings/themes about what I think it means to be human (in no particular order):

If you find yourself, you can go free.

There’s still space for softness in the sharp world.

We can hold onto what it means to be family.

Victory is not about whatever it takes to win, but what you keep when the battle is over.

You are more courageous than you know.

You may think somebody’s wrong until you’ve been in their shoes

There is hope that my hurt and my pain can be healed.

Sometimes the people who should love you, don’t. And you have to move forward even if it hurts to admit they don’t, even when you still want to believe in them.

What do you do after forever falls apart?

Maybe love can save somebody’s world.
