What's your Passion?

Everyone has a passion, and along with that passion brings dreams. We all must crawl before we walk, so don't ever give up. My name is Kevin and my passion is writing Poetry.  I am always putting my brain to work because it's the most powerful part of the human body.  You never know what you can do until you put your mind to it!  I wrote this poem below to give any and everybody inspiration through their journey of life.

“Reaching for the Stars”

With an endless imagination, all your dreams can come true

Heart and determination is the number one clue

Don’t think small, think big as a star

And never give up when times get hard

Back to the clue, do you know what you want?

If the passion’s in your heart, you’re now determined to start

But don’t get discouraged; people will want you to fail

That should be encouragement for you to prevail

Now clue two, do whatever it takes

And keep your eyes on the prize, there will be mistakes

But you did it, your there, how did you make is this far

Just smile and tell people that you “Reached for the Stars”

Reach for the Stars and sore high! My father always told me and still to this day tells me, "Sky's the limit son, you can do whatever you put your mind to!" I am a firm believer in that, and I believe anybody can accomplish their goals in life.  I have worked a lot in my life, many different jobs here and there.  I don't think anybody wants to work a day job for the rest of their life, unless it's something they have a passion for.  What do you think? Getting up early to work for someone else to make them more money, I don't think so! Why not find what you truly want to do in your heart and go after it?  After all, if you can see it, you can achieve it right? 

See, our mind is very powerful, and when we add our heart into play the results are endless! That's why I have developed a passion for writing.  I put my heart into my work and use my mind to produce it.  Just like it says in my poem, "heart and determination is the number one clue."  You must put your heart into whatever it is that you are trying to accomplish, that's a clue to success. If something frustrates me, I can pick up my pen and pad to soothe my nerves. I can put my brain to work by taking that frustration off of whatever it is that's frustrating me and put my thoughts on paper. Writing is both my dream and my passion. Even though I work a day job now and I love where I work, at the end of the day, poetry is where my heart lies. Anybody can get up and go to work each day, but is that what you really want to do for the rest of your life?  Take a look in the mirror at your life and compare your day job with your passion. Follow your hopes and dreams, achieve your goals and most importantly...Reach for the Stars!

  1. This is so true and inspirational. Never sell yourself short on your dreams or aspirations... life is to short for wishing you had done something or for having regrets <3

  2. This speaks true on so many levels. Life is way too short to have any regrets or to sell yourself short. Why go through life being just ok with something you're doing instead of doing something you feel complete while doing. You will feel so much better at the end of the day knowing you made a difference or that you're living your Passion...

  3. Is this the first poem that you have ever written about on a blog? I would love to read more blogs and poems that you write.

    This is a great, true, and expansive topic that I completely agree with. Too many people settle for average because it is enough to get by instead of really going for their true dreams ans aspirations. Hopefully with more people reading this they will go for the gold instead of settling for silver...

  4. I'm proud of you Kevin..keep this up. ;p ...Jeannie
