The Spirit of the Phoenix

by Rebecca Wiles

Beautiful, glorious and sacrificing self for renewal

you build a pyre and set yourself ablaze.

For the sake of  self;

Red bird of  fire

You come forth through your ashes

A new bird shedding the old self;

Which no longer is needful.

You embrace your new strength and fly

To the heights of the sky,

To the city of the sun, and

give the ashes unto the alter of the sun god;

For your immortality.

Embrace yourself for you are a child of the sun,

And will live eternal;

Through birth, death, and renewal!

The spirit never dies!
