Reality Versus Passion

a conversation lingered in my mind ... between Reality Versus Passion! singing my greatest devotion I find choosing technology the persuasion ! in technology jobs are abundant, won't be painful to get a job I crave! love music from the bottom of my heart.. difficult to succeed even if I’m brave! I have no agent, I have no money! recording companies hard to impress! contests are tough, nerve-wracking and funny may get awful stage-fright - hardly success! Reality Versus Passion - hard choice efforts are rewarded -tells a wise voice!

Thanks, Molly. Delighted you read my poem. It happened many years ago, I stopped training for music. Now I have started again..although it's a bit late. Best wishes ~ Mala

I suggest you stay faithful to your passion, Mala! Without it no results will come your way. After all, who wants to buy success at all costs!! ~ Warm regards, my friend. // paul

Thank you, Paul. Actually this happened many years ago..when I gave up singing..not totally, just the training. That was my own realistic decision at that time. Anyway, I have started following my passions again. Really appreciate your thoughtful comment.
