Like a phoenix I rose
From the ashes of a discarded life
Hateful words and actions
That taught me to love and care
The fires of spite and disdain
No longer burn in my heart
Replaced by a smooth flowing river
Of happiness and freedom
Lessons of harshness and cruelty
Teaching me to rise above
To face each day with strength
Instead of sadness and despair
Like a phoenix I rose
Determinedly spreading my wings
To the winds of hope and change
Searching for my fate
Finding a beautiful destiny
Rebuilding my shattered life
From the fallen stones of my soul
Gathering my wits about me
Boldly moving forward
Refusing to be brought down
By the disappointments of life
Life is not easy, but there is always hope. . .
