Passion Tamed

Updated on September 3, 2011


Passion Tamed


Passion is like a steadily flowing river it can’t or should I say, it SHOULD’T be controlled. To control your passion is just like building a dam, in a way to tame it. Truth be told, I am very guilty of doing just that, trying to tame my passion. But the problem with that is…



When you try to tame something that should not be, it becomes UNcontrollable. Even if it has been tamed for a time it won’t stay that way forever and one day it will burst through your dam like…well like a river that has been trapped just a little bit too long and you have to let it free. Passion is supposed to flow steadily and show in everything you do even if it’s just a little. I am just now learning this myself and bit by bit I will let my dam fall.

Passion has so many twists and turns to it and can be shown in many different ways…so show it!




Dedicated to JadedLove for whom I would not have even thought to write something like this without a comment he wrote to me. Thank you!

      Hi Sweets21

      Nice hub! Your images added power to your words.I certainly agree with not 'daming up your passion' or controlling it in a negative way. I do think if a person channels her passion that it can lead to beautiful poetry and beautiful prose.

      Nice articles Sweets21, I look forward to following you and sharing your passion down many channels. Up and Beautiful.

      Truth is the word. Passion when developed can enrich the soul and bring happiness to others. I learnt a longtime ago about my passion for reading, writing and this has brought me untold blessings and love. Hope you tame not the good passion cos it is bound to overflow someday. Great piece!
