There is an ache inside for far off places,
An ache to understand unusual faces.
An ache for beauty, adventure, growing,
An ache for wisdom, love, and knowing.
An ache for the possible of impossible things,
An ache to see mysterious lands and kings.
An ache to find those of kindred mind
who think and feel and dream for mankind.
An ache to fight against the dark,
An ache for hope and love and spark.
An ache to fly and soar and be
An ache to finally find oneself free.
An ache to explore every turn on the road,
An ache to find a safe, lasting abode.
There are too many aches in this one heart,
Which is why, I believe, it creates so much art.
