The Birth Of Light (Phoenix)


Legend can be found in each ray of the sun

As we reach deeper into a dirty well of truth

A blistering heat of vividly colored realities

Holds vague memories of misguided youth


A brilliant smile brings warmth everywhere

While oceans and skies of blue see the world

Solar intensity burns bright and everlasting

A flag of painful truth and loyalty is unfurled


Sol exists only to bare witness and shed light

On the beautiful and brilliant phoenix rising

From smoldering ashes of staggering atrocity

A story of true suffering in need of reprising


A new tale told, one of determined survival

Allowing others to seek shelter under wing

This protective angel out from under ashes

Carries with her hope, as angels voices sing






Warrior Phoenix


These eyes have seen, and this body has felt

Many years of adversities and obstacles

Trials and tribulations.

I have stepped much too close to the edge

Played with fire, burned badly by the flame

Been left weary and weak

Tried and tested, pushed and proven

Rocked and rolled, left for dead

To see light of day again

My self my opposition, a worthy adversary

To you I can only find these words to say

Listen closely and take heed


Go ahead

Knock me down

I will get up


Keep on

Knock me down again

Again I will get up 



Push me over yet again

Once more I stand


Be strong

Drive me down hard

I lift myself smiling


That all you got?

Send me reeling this time

Joy accompanies my ascent


Throw me over

Painful reminders of long ago

Pride sees me up one more time


Grind me into the dirt

Weakened I continue to stand

Stand and fight for my life


No longer can you make me fall

I watch your expression;  surprise

Laughing, I rise one last time


I rise like the Mighty Phoenix

As you, my Demons, realize

That you are truly FUCKED


I am a warrior, and will rise

Repeatedly from the ashes

To soar high above you once again
