Rise, Phoenix

Hello old me.

I want to apologize.

I'm sorry for the way I've acted,

I'm sorry for hiding myself,

I'm sorry for being hesitant,

And I'm sorry for being self-deprecating.


You know what?

Forget it!

That doesn't matter anymore.

I don't have to apologize.

It's your fault and I'm ending this now.

No more!

My time is up.

It's now time to forget about you,

It's time to be better,

And it's time to show who I really am,

I'm not going to let you hold me down.

There will be those days that you will try,

But I won't let you.

It's time to rise!





Rise from those ashes that are the past,

And become one with the phoenix.

Rise like the morning sun and the glimmering moon.

Rise like the clouds and the stars above.

Never go back down,

Never go low.

Always up,

Always high.

Now breath in the air,

And breath out.

You are now at peace,

You are now a phoenix.

What does this mean?

It means that you're born again,

But you're better than ever.

You'll keep on improving each time you're reborn into a new phoenix.

Continue to rise and to be reborn,

And soon you will become the person you've always wanted to be.

A writer,

And so much more.

I return to this place.

Distant, yet close.

After being gone for so long, I believe I've improved.

I may fall, but that doesn't mean I can't get back up.

Each time I fall, I improve even more.

Each time I improve, I am reborn into a new Phoenix.

Even if they hate it, I'm moving on.

The Phoenix never dies.

Welcome back.

A new age is beginning.

The Phoenix... rises once again.
