The Firey Nature of Passion

Passion is many times alluded to as a raging fire. Fire accurately describes the nature of Passion. On one hand, the fire of passion can be used constructively; if contained, it can help ignite other fires. On the other hand it can be used destructively to put out fires. During Desert Storm, Saddam Hussein lit many oil wells on fire. Water could be used to no avail to put these fires out, nor did anything else work. These massive fires were consumed by the another fire created by dynamite. The dynamite literally licked up all the oxygen, suffocating and ultimately destroying the once thriving fire.
