Creativity Portal prompt on 3.28.09 - Can't we all just get along?
No. We can't. Passion lives in all of us. Some of us are lucky enough to recognize it. Some of us are lucky enough to find what we are passionate about. Some just go through life hoping to find something they can be passionate about.
Unfortunately, that passion fuels a hunger, a need, a desire for the world to be what we want it to be. And we don't all have the same outlook on that. We all feel our way of seeing things has to be the right, good, and correct way.
The timing of this prompt really hits home for me. That place where your morals and beliefs live and fuel your passion inside can be met with uncompromising rigidity and iciness from the cold world outside. How painful. So you weep heartful silent tears down your cheeks that become nothing more than lukewarm shattered wishes as they face the frigid inflexibility of rules and edicts.
As long as individuality remains, peace can never be achieved. Compromise can be achieved through pain and sacrifice on both sides. But compromise is not ideal peace for either party.
