What lights a spark in you?

Let me tell you something I’ve realized to be true

If you want to see people at their happiest this is what you should do

Find out about their area of passion

Regarding that subject, initiate a discussion

Watch their faces light up, their voices get animated

As they expound on their subject until they have disseminated

Information so detailed you can barely comprehend

All you should do is a patient ear lend

You may not understand the content but their exuberance you feel

What lights the spark in them, you’ve made them reveal..


I fall for the passion in people’s eyes

I have often been taken by surprise

By how indifference transforms into animation

When unwittingly their source of passion is mentioned

Passion changes people and then they

Change the world in a positive way
