Passion

How can one stay still
When a fire rages within?
Love canít be caught and tamed,
burning passion never thins

Overpowering our weakness
It builds up a reaction
Agitating the most patient
And spurring us into action

It consumes the mind
And stimulates the spirit
Rousing the hardest of hearts
Pushing us beyond our limit

The shy become bold
As it burns in their eyes
For a passion this strong
There is no disguise

But there are those
who are our bane.
For our fire within
They try to restrain.

Though people may try
They still havenít learned
If you try to control fire
You will always get burned
