Rise Above

stocksnap_bnr9i8495pFlames lick at my tired, dry bones

Try to overcome my weary heart

That drowns me beneath the surface

Of grief and pain that sets me so apart


This pain, like chains, wrapped around my wings

These chains, a reminder of my suffering

Ignored by most, rejected by all

My immortality is coveted by kings


I am a phoenix, born from the ashes

Thrown through the ring of a fiery birth

Flames devour all thoughts of discontent

Until nothing is left but scorched earth


But when this world meets its violent end

I’ll rise above to live again
