She wondered deep within her soul
If passion were a sin-
'Oh yes, of course,' someone replied,
'Its clutches take you in!

It seizes your emotions well,
And causes such disdain-
You'll see your soul deep down in hell!
You can't express the pain!'

But no! This isn't what she wants
Her passion to embrace-
For passion doesn't have to flaunt,
Or bring to one disgrace!

The passion she desires is such
That heart and soul and mind-
Has but one focus, and that much
Is reason for her kind!

This kind of person wants to let
Her passion be her guide-
To reach those whom she has not met,
With God's arms opened wide!
