this newly impassioned soul
Stars hide your fires
For these here are my desires
And I won't give them up to you this time around
And so I'll be found
With my stake stuck in the ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul
Driving home earlier today, I think I listened to the above lyrics (from Mumford and Son's "Roll Away Your Stone") a dozen times. Music, as we all know, has such power. Today I allowed one roaring, cavorting stanza to fill me up with hope, over and over and over again.
