Prison Or Passion

Similar to the relief from a good cry. 

The prism of colors after the storm. 

The derivative of pain can be beauty. 

Sometimes your purpose lies

Amongst the rubble of your dreams. 

Adversity, sorrow, misfortune,

Don’t let it imprison you.

See the prosperity after the trail,

Be invigorated by the challenges.

You will find that this prison

In fact bred your passion. 

For me the same ache

That moves my pen. 

Liberates my heart.  

~R.K. Russell
