Burning Passion

Passion burns – fire resides

Deep, deep inside,

This is what I need

My heart concedes.

Dreams ridiculed and scorned,

Before they’re fully formed.

Keep the smile on my lips –

Words they say from stolen scripts.

The truth, the crux of the matter –

My desires you cannot shatter.

I’ll keep my dreams close to my heart,

And believe in the value of my art.

Even if I’m the only one in this town,

You will not ever bring me down.
