Poem -

Phoenix

It’s more than shedding my skin
I’ve burnt up everything I used to be
Turned to ashes and welcomed new birth
A new awakening, a new life to live
I can be who I want, and do as I say
No more chains holding me down to solid ground
I can fly with my new set of wings
Spread so boldly across open skies
Through clouds and dust
Soaring over every storm coming my way
I have recreated my being
And now, I am better than before
