Phoenix Rising

Alone between worlds uneasy with fear
Still clutching the past and all I hold dear
Soul burdened with sorrow my life taken away
With death all around me and putrid decay

In darkness above celestial orbs in the skies
My life’s ashes below on a stone of demise
Between heaven and earth I lie and I wait
Wondering what next, unaware of my fate

While the sun still rises, on I will quest
For my phoenix will rise to this I attest
Til heavenly radiance rains down upon me
And My spirit emerges and soul is set free
