“A Girl Named Phoenix”

She begins with frown,
With a whisper,
“I’m over it,
Bring me back to light!
I’m a leaf on the ground
With no hope in my veins
And I’m so sick of crying…
I got stashed in a drawer
Among all my dreams
And mirrors told me lies.
Hit the bottom and burned
But the lesson got learned
And now the ink
On my skin
Is a sign that I’m

Back to life,
I felt the roars of the thunders
When falling downwards
Though I survived;
Almost everything passed
As I laid in the ashes,
Still, feeling every second
Passing by
On my withered soul
And now these walls
Start moving back.
I’m a phoenix back to the world.

Now this sun doesn’t hurt
On the signs of the plasters;
Heaven’s not so high, now.
What if everyone’s wrong?
What if I am really happy?
Would you just be kind
Or forsake me again
Where I blend with my shame
And flush away my life?
Hit the bottom and burned
But my luck is on turn
And I am…
I am still here.

Back to life,
I felt the roars of the thunders
When falling downwards
Though I survived;
Almost everything passed
As I laid in the ashes,
Still, feeling every second
Passing by
On my withered soul
And now these walls
Start moving back.
I’m a phoenix back to the world.”
