It is not enough
to find your passion
you must fight for it too
defend your right to crackle
with intensity
beware the gusts of distraction
and the erosion of your spark
that can happen when
you’re not looking
and when the muse
ignores your plea
become a warrior
that beats the deadness away
for this is your real quest anyway
to drink in the tiny changes
that can take an average life
and make it thunder with joy.
