From the Ashes (I Am Phoenix)
Battered, bruised, beaten, and left for DEAD.
He's finished, it's over, is what was SAID.
If I did survive, it was predicted I'd never be the SAME.
A man of character, will, and integrity, inside raged an eternal FLAME.
Driven by the speculation and widespread affirmation that I was DONE.
Replenished, I was, from my nest and rays of the SUN.
From the ashes, I Am Phoenix, I began to RISE.
Shattering all myths of an early DEMISE.
From the ashes, I Am Phoenix, the symbol of IMMORTALITY.
Against all odds, I have distorted perceptions of REALITY.
Regenerating from the fire WITHIN.
Revived and renewed once AGAIN.
No fear of death, strengthened from the flame's HEAT.
From the ashes, I Am Phoenix, reversing the agony of DEFEAT.
They couldn't believe it, the rebirth appeared to be an ILLUSION.
Stunned in foolish disbelief and withered to a ball of CONFUSION.
From the ashes, I Am Phoenix, immortal through FIRE.
Some still wouldn't grasp, while others began to ADMIRE.
Fueled by heat, from the inside I BURN.
To be born again, forever did I YEARN.
Experienced through trials, the battle scars are no MORE.
From the ashes, I am Phoenix, forever will I SOAR.
To conquer me, to defeat me, their best was surely TRIED.
Ascending from the flames, all efforts were DENIED.
From the ashes, I am Phoenix, to many I am a SURPRISE.
An amazing feat, resurrected before their very EYES.
