I wrote this from a perspective that even as we're stuck in a love affair with our passions, it's ok to take a break from them. It doesn't mean you no longer love that particular thing anymore, it just means that you have to clear your mind to approach it again with all that you have.
Energy is a rising and falling action, so please go easy on yourself during these times of being dormant. Your soul is essential to being who you truly are. May this inspire something to someone out there struggling with this. Good vibes to you always!
She kept at it until it consumed her
Energy all zapped out
It felt overpowering like a wildfire
One she could never confound
Passion as it seeps into her soul
Could also be the thing to keep her from going with the flow
'Does that mean I don't love it anymore?'
'Does it mean it's over?'
'Why are these feelings suddenly taking over?'
She grew evermore frustrated
And even felt out of place
But it wasn't that she wasn't passionate anymore
She just needed some space
It was time to breathe away the worries
Of not being great
Of not being good enough
Of never feeling like she made a difference
All consuming it was
And she loved it still
But it was time for her to be real
To herself, 'I just need a small break,
To breathe and appreciate the progress that I've made.'
In her heart, she knew this was best
She needed air to reassure herself that this was merely a test
Of paying attention when she was distressed
In the time away, she came to understand even the smallest things
How she changed and how positively that helped
On the mistakes she exasperated over
She could see it, clear as day
A passionate breath was needed
It was essential
To make her soul feel alive again
And the passion set in
It never left
It never will
But if she had to be real
A passionate breath was just as important indeed
To live out her passions, completely and truly
