Passive Voice?

Shall I write in passive voice,
And active voice displace,
And if chosen should I cringe,”
Bereft of my reader’s embrace?

Should I stay true to mine own form,
Or to my passion adhere,
Writing as my heart dictates,
Or changing out of fear?

And as I write, my character’s voice
In passionate soliloquy,
I hear an ancient voice proclaim,
“To be or not to be.”
