Sketch for a Theory of Persistent Passions (v)

when you forgo some pleasures
and choose to sacrifice
behold you may actually be surprised
to find that satisfaction can also be derived from doing so

however, a more common phenomenon
is such that once you go beyond a certain threshold
in the undertaking of your core activity
you start to desire change
unless you’ve developed a special affinity for your discipline
or you’re driven forward by purpose
which marks the highest valuation of any passion portfolio

personally, from my own experiences
I draw the inspiration for expression
while traversing the intersection of
fact and fiction
in order to come by tales that reveal workings of the imagination
since that is what gives me the greatest of feelings
