phoenix

ashes to ashes
dust to dust
ember to spark
death shall not conquer
this day
rising from the rubble
of shattered hopes and dreams
spark to flare
piecing together
the puzzle of yourself
from faded memories
flare to flame
opening your eyes
breathing fresh air
standing on your own two feet
flame to fire
taken the first step,
now taking the second,
reaching out blindly,
fire to blaze
used to be darkness,
but now a light is
there to be seen
blaze to inferno
rebirth

~

Rising Higher

Rising higher, but not as Icarus
Not foolishly flying on wings of wax
Only to fall back down to earth

Rising higher, climbing a mountain
With hard work and dedication
Both feet firmly on the ground

Yet still rising

~

Hope everyone has a happy and safe new year’s, and may 2013 be successful, enlightening, and fulfilling to each and every one of you.
