The Fire Inside You

My friend
I know you also have this fire inside you
I can see it in your eyes
And feel it in your soul
It burns at you
Like it did me
It calls, it shouts, it begs
It nudges, it whispers
You may have tried to ignore it
But you can’t
And then it starts growing
Into everything you are
And everything you do

Take heart traveller
The fire that calls you
Comes from somewhere unknown
No one knows why it calls some
And not others

But this I know to be true
If it calls you, go, don’t hesitate, go
This fire could be the grace of transformation
That gives this mysterious journey meaning
It could even be love itself, who knows

Give yourself to the calling
Again and again
Until there is no more you.
