Passion is any strong feeling or thought
Of love, hate, fear, anger and grief.
The emotional joy of sexual desire
Sometimes the suffering of saint or thief.
The cruelty of man nailing Christ to the cross
His treatment subsequent to the last supper.
Continuing conflict with endless war,
Make it seem we’re prone to suffer.
All must carry their own cross in life,
While they struggle to survive the day.
Passion reveals how much we desire,
As we race toward our outcome and pray.
