rising again

The Phoenix

Folder:

Like the phoenix

I rise once more

From the ashes

 

Where I did lay

Broken and sore

From life’s slashes

 

Yet I do rise

And fly again

Soaring to the sky

 

This is my life

Sometimes I win

And I fly

 

Sometimes I lose

And take the pain

Find new scares

 

But I do rise

Never in vain

Trying to reach the stars

This one was about me getting up after being hurt. Now mind you the only boy that ever hit me was Mike Aversa. He was the first and the last that ever even thought of putting his hands on me.
