Owl Poetry & Prose

Phoenix Rising

To rise out of the ashes a phoenix, you need to enter the fire first

It will scorch you in its embrace, torture you till you retrace, refine all that is disgraced

Something better, burnished, tarnished with only the memory of pain

But the taint of achievement, the triumph of survival coupled with the freedom of revival

To rise above it all, we need to take the plunge, take the fall

Be the phoenix, enter the flames, burn & learn

The ashes will be your reminder of that which you conquered, that which you discerned

Yet remember, to it someday will you once again return
