You have to follow your passion

Umesh is a freelance writer contributing his creative writings on varied subjects in various knowledge and educational sites in internet.

Introduction

While growing up we get our education and then make a career in one particular area. The big question is whether it is our interest area or not. Whether we like our work or not. It is always better and also advisable to make a career in the line of interest. This poem is an attempt to inspire people in that direction.

Follow your passion

You are born to grow,

It is a natural process.

You grow to learn,

In the desired phases.


Education is a must,

You have to get it.

Elders would ask you,

Maximum score to hit.


What is your interest,

And what are your passions?

Are you not wasting,

All of those sessions?


You say you want to,

Be an artist or a writer.

Then you have to be,

A real life fighter.


Parents would force,

Society would pressurise.

But you would be a writer,

In engineer's disguise.


Be bold with a firm soul,

And set your own goal.

No doubts no mention,

Simply follow your passion.



Endnote

If we follow our interest or passion in our lives we can definitely achieve the unimaginable success and the only thing required is to identify one's interest and then focus in that direction with full sincerity and seriouness.

Thank you for this lovely piece. I feel that I came across this poem at the right time and it is a good reminder for me to follow my passion.

Aruj, thanks a lot. Appreciate much.

Aruj on April 09, 2020:

Very well put. And while passion is very important, what you said in your end notes about ‘focus’ and ‘sincerity’ I think that’s equally important.

Bhattuc on April 09, 2020:

Renu, thanks a lot for the nice appreciation. It is encouraging.

Bhattuc on April 09, 2020:

Anand, you are so kind. God bless you my brother.

Renu Joshi on April 09, 2020:

You should have penned this for us during our formative age.

Pleasant article!!

Indeed one should always opt a career of his/her interest rather than compromising with a forcefully imposed work area!!

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on April 03, 2020:

Prateek, thanks a lot.

Devika Primic on April 03, 2020:

Any goal followed and achieved gives one a positive outlook on life. When you have an interest and passion to do what makes you happy it would work out for you.

Prateek Jain from Madhya Pradesh, India on April 03, 2020:

Simply amazing and true words. I have my passion in finance sector so therefore i decided to become a banker. If everyone will follow their passion then their jobs will not bore them.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 30, 2020:

Rajan, thanks for your comments.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on March 29, 2020:

Nice message to follow one's passion if you wish to excel in life. Thank you.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 20, 2020:

Rosina, thanks for your nice thoughts and visiting my poem. Appreciate.

Rosina S Khan on March 20, 2020:

This is a clear message that one must follow his passions and get the mojo of life. He should enjoy doing what he loves. For years I was in a career that I cared for. But then I quit my job and took up writing. Writing seems a perfect passion but I may switch to my original field of expertise anytime, which is also one of my passions.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Ruby Jean, happy to know that in your second innings you are able to follow your passion. Thanks for your supplementing comment. Appreciate much.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 13, 2020:

My passion was nursing, and I did that for 34 years, now my passion is writing and reading. Your poem radiates truth. Follow your passion and you will find happiness.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Eric, you take the cake. So many passions. Remarkable. So much thanks for your nice words and visiting here. Highly appreciate.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 13, 2020:

I love it, just love it. I think my children follow their passions. This I can be proud of.

As for me -- too many passions to count over 60 years. And I loved them all. Maybe a little hard on the women in my life.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

DreamerMeg, it is astonishing that you could do so much in your retired life and made a second major career line. Kudos to you and all the best. Thanks for visiting and your comment.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Raymond, thanks a lot for your acknowledgement. Appreciate.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Kyler, you have explained and elaborated on the theme of the poem and for that I feel very thankful. So nice of you.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Clive, so nice to hear from you. Thanks a lot.

DreamerMeg from Northern Ireland on March 13, 2020:

This is so very true. I know someone who wanted to study history but his parents would not allow that. I never really knew what I wanted to do and went into office work where I stayed all my working life BUT, I learned some very useful things there and have found a new career after retirement in an area that did not exist when I was young (computers!)

Raymond Philippe from The Netherlands on March 13, 2020:

Very inspirational!

Kyler J Falk from Corona, CA on March 13, 2020:

"Be bold with a firm soul, and set your own goal."

This is one thing I wish someone had really hammered home with me at a young age, rather than placing expectations as to what my goals should be as far as what society needs and wants me to be doing with my life. Kids, and many adults, these days need to be taught how to look at a big goal they would like to achieve, how to set small goals and take them a step at a time, and that failing one small goal does not mean you failed the big goal.

A very important sentiment here in this wonderful poem.

Clive Williams from Jamaica on March 13, 2020:

A motivational kind of poem about real goal achievements that you love.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Lorna, thanks a lot for your good words and visit. Highly appreciate.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Flourish, you have given a practical example as what to choose in life. Great! I thank you wholeheartedly for your comment as well as sparing time.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Liz, thanks for your kind words. Appreciate much.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 13, 2020:

Manatita44, great views and great knowledge of other religious books. Appreciate much. Comments from a senior hubber like you are a matter of honour and encouragement for me. Thanks a lot.

Lorna Lamon on March 13, 2020:

It's so true if you follow your dreams or passion then you will find contentment. However, the pressures of life can sometimes take you off track. It's good to have goals and hopefully get there in the end. A great poem with a strong message.

FlourishAnyway from USA on March 13, 2020:

If you end up in the wrong field you’ll regret it. You can take a middle path and still eat if desired. That’s what I did.

Liz Westwood from UK on March 13, 2020:

This is an interesting and very relevant subject. So many people end up in jobs that they don't enjoy. Your theory is an ideal that sadly many fail to live out.

manatita44 from london on March 13, 2020:

Yes Bro.

Doing your own Dhama

One of the central messages of the Gita. Doing the duty of another, may create confusion and unhappiness.

I was fortunate to be a serv ant at work and I can be so in the spiritual life.

You express this messzge very well. Lovely and wise poetry. Thank you.
