The flame that burned inside him
Had become a constant glow
His heart took him to places
That he heard of long ago
Places some called turning points
While others called them trials
Places birthing wisdom
In a synchronistic style
Places he had longed for
In his lonely empty way
Places that were filling up
With every passing day
Places others took him
With their insight or their smile
Places that he found alone
Inside him all the while
Places that inspired faith
And places he found love
Places that he took his friends
All places worthy of
The kindling of the fire within
For when it starts to grow
Your heart will take you places
That you really ought to go
