Phoenix. {Poem}


I am Death, I am Life,
I am the Phoenix burning bright

From the ashes thought dead and gone,
I fly up from and sing my song…

Death to beliefs of limitations, frustrations,
and the sins of self hate
weighing me down in this state.

So light the fire and let it burn within
till I am encased in flames,
for the purification to begin

Such peace I feel… as the fire burns and peels
what is no longer me
leaving me in this moment free…

To rise and claim my rights
as I the Phoenix take flight

For I am Death, I am Life,
I am the Phoenix burning bright.
