Poem: Desire

Quote of the day:

The key to change... is to let go of fear.
-Rosanne Cash

Because of fear.
He hid his talent.

In the most secret of places.
A maze that no one could solve.
A song that no voice could sing.
A picture that no one could see.
A dream that no one could dream.

He hid his talent.
He felt the whole world was against him.

He hid his talent.
For he felt no one would need it.

But alas, something helped change his mind.
He met desire and nothing was the same again.

Desire pushed him to reveal his secret.
Desire urged him to share his talent.
Desire helped him conquer fear.

Now he is no longer afraid...


Current Listen: B.o.B -Don't Le Me Fall
