rising again

The Phoenix


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.
