Moving On!

Cover 5a

Today
I finally,
Closed the door.

To endless heartache
And pain.

Letting go
Is also painful.
From those whom you,
Deeply care.

But,
There comes,a breaking point,
Where your heart
Can take no more.

If all you get,
Is endless pain,
What else,
Can you do?

If you had to,
Face the same thing,
What do you think,
You would do?

Risen!

Fire 2aa

She said,
You know,
I know about suffering,
Trials and tribulations.

But then,
Once I fell down,
I was still pushed
Down, down and
Down again
To the very end.

Almost as if
I was crucified!

The voice said
Yes they did.
But,
You will rise again.

And,
She did!

The Rise of The Phoenix !

phoenix-2a

Being condemned,
By
Those of
Narrow minded.

Ripped apart
Her innocence.
Pushing her,

Into,
The darkness
Deep down below.

Flames of
Pain and sadness,
Engulfed her and,
Burnt her.

That,
She was not seen,
As who she was,
Before.

But,
Those who
Really knew,
Her true self,

Pulled her up,
From,
Deep down below !

Slowly but surely,
Through her
Sheer will power,

She rose
From the,
Very Fire
That,
Burnt her !

A light so bright,
That
No fire could match,
To,
Burn her again.

Like the phoenix,
She rose
From,
The ashes.

Stronger than ever
Bright as the sun,
To shine again.

A new beginning.
A new life.
To live again !
