I hear the word "love"

A word that, until very recently, I never completely understood

Only when I was finally honest with myself and with others

Was I able to get a grasp on this concept

So new, and now so dear to me

I hear the word "passion"

This word I have yet to understand

No one has ever been able to really explain it

Will this be something that I will ever experience?

Or, will it forever remain a mystery, utterly alien to me?

I learn something new nearly every day

And it never ceases to amaze me

There's so much yet to learn

That I feel even after an entire lifetime I will never fully understand

This world is so vast and so complex

But it all starts with one word…
