Welcome to this week’s Prose for Thought and to the steady stream of linkers that I am pleased to see each week and read some amazing creativity. The talent out there knows no bounds.
On Tuesday of this week I was lucky enough to get an acting job, appearing in a documentary about Stonehenge which should be shown on one of the BBC channels around June and the Summer Solstice. I haven’t acted for a while now and I had ‘sort of’ given up thinking that I will never really go anywhere with it BUT being back on set again and in costume, playing someone else, made me remember just how much I love this profession and how much I truly want to do it. I do have an Agent, I am trying to better myself and I really believe that if I keep trying I will get there one day.
This has been the inspiration behind my poem this week.
I reignited the spark today,
The one I thought had gone
I thought that it had gone away
but now I know I’m wrong
It really is so strong
The feeling I have inside
It’s one I’ve had so long
And something I just can’t hide
I want to do it so much
So much with all my heart
I try hard to stay in touch
With the love I have for my art
I’ve tried so hard to leave it
And forget that it just won’t be
There are times I don’t believe it
There are times when it makes me see
Because one day it will be my turn
To make a living this way
This flame I have is a slow burn
My passion will have it’s day
