Rise Of A Phoenix

I was crushed, I was pushed
By People I know & those unknown
I was made to accept my fate

Dreams were ridiculed
I was disparaged
I cried in the dark,
I cried of lone

Wounds were deep
I lacked the light
Heart was set to ignite

Breaths were heavy
Dampen were the eyes
Tried hard to hide the wail
The time was cruel

The struggle has begun
Or has it finished
Clouds of despair
Made it hard to discern

In the moment of quail
An angel’s voice I heard
And it came from my heart

With the softness it said
Hold on to your dreams
For it will be granted
Hang on to your beliefs
