You can read the and listen to the poems here, and you can also listen to the poems read on KUT 90.5 FM throughout the month of April.

Passion

Read by John Aielli.

This is my passion,
This is my love.

I express my ideas,
I express my passion.
My passion comes out as ideas,
And my ideas sometimes come out as a passion.

Some might call it too hard,
Some might say I don't have it.

I know I have it,
I know they don't think so.

But I know……………………….
For it’s my passion,
For me,
It’s not playing with a ball,
Or using a stick to make colors,
My passion is having a passion.
