We are not entitled to exciting things.
Neither sunrise, nor sunset waits for any human hand.
It simply is, and you must be there to capture it, if you want, and you can.
Lest you complain, that you have been given a lesser chance than another man.
To live your life without the sleep you need, and sacrifice your hands and feet.
In pursuit of something far short of eternity.
I call that a distraction.
On your game again, you cannot help but play again.
Obsession mixed with practice, is but a single means of expressing passion.
Which may or may not be, for you, a form of extraction.
Pulling yourself from the reality of a dissatisfactory life.
Softening the blow to take, and heading down the wrong direction.
Time and time again, for goodness sake….
This life, this journey, will always be full of such mistakes.
But to let your doubts drive you away,
To let your fear of the unknown, leech the very passion of your life away,
By means of distraction.
That my friends, is a failure of action.
A surrender to the reaction of taking a check, and spending your small fraction.
When every day, you’d grow in spirit, if you'd only renegade with your your passion.
Staggering home after half a day, while trying simply to escape, the prior day's’ inability and inaction.
But I digress. Remember this.
We are not entitled to live exciting lives of interaction.
We must first create and encourage, not inhibit,
The excitement within others,
Which motivates them towards their own action.
This my friends, is the very nature of passion.
a strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything
