What if poetry and passion and connection are going extinct?
What if the world needs your poetry and passion as much as it needs more fossil fuels, another infomercial, another MBA student?
What if the real shortage here is love?
We can move worlds with our passion (like he did; like she did).
Brands can never be passionate. Which is why we’re not brands.
And never will be.
Passion comes before work.
Then it comes through work.
Then, perhaps, it is work.
Perhaps we can’t tell (what does it look like again?)
We learn these things together.
When they ask you why you’re writing,
tell them, because it’s who I am.
Let it be enough.
Move the world with your passion,
your passion alone.
