Phoenix

Fiery Bird

Black flames cast no light,
crackling unseen at the core,
sealed in a shell of guilt and lies,
burning in torment that never ends

Kindle clean fire from the sun,
burn away the putrid shell,
spread the light, heal the wounds,
endure the flash of cleansing sight.

Now, step from the embers,
spread your wings,
catch the wind and rise,
weightless into the honest blue
