When there is passion
there is determination
when there is determination
there's perseverance
When there's perseverance
there's a strong will
and when there's a will
there's a way...

When there is passion
there is persistence
when there is persistence
discouragement does not thrive
When there is passion
there is no caution
"No" is a challenge to overcome

When there is passion
there is warmth
When there is passion
there is romance
When there is romance
Love will bloom
Passionate lovers
are a delight

Passion knows no bounds
Passion knows no regrets

A person who is passionate
will never be lonely
because there will always be
something to pursue
there will always be a inspiration
a goal
a task
something to strive for
something to accomplish

Tell me, what are you passionate about?

How very true, Liza!

Great poem; that's the kind that should be printed out and taped to the front of the refrigerator.

I love your truth and your poem. What am I passionate about? Life. Big, bold, beautiful, even when it's not -- I have a passion to live.

As much as I loved your poem, I can't help noticing that I'm very passionate but I'm not perseverant at all..-bummer!

Well to be honest, I dont know for sure what I am going through right now. I am a second-courser. I am actually graduating in my second course but up to now I am still unsure if this is the right profession I will be practicing.

I must admit I am not a good student. But that is because I am feeling board with school.

I am fighting this feeling of boredom even up to now.

I am just glad that blogging came to my idea. With this I get a change to express what I feel at the same time earn.

As to my studies, I dont know yet for sure what will happen.

My family, of course is number one.

My friends are number two.

My lifelong interests - music, politics, reading, movies -- are number three.

Newer interests -- cooking, writing and local history -- are number four.

And I love the way blogging can combine them all.
