The Phoenix

Ashy ruin surrounds me and heavy smoke
paints the sky black
I cry for what was lost
Scorch marks etch my body
And I am consumed ~
Stripped to my very core
Naked and Rejected with nothing but
Tears and Grief as companions
When suddenly, the spirits of my ancestors
Stoke the dying flame within my soul
And I remember who I am:
A Warrior, born of Fire
who shall not be defeated but will rise again
Like a Phoenix
And be reborn
