Sophia White

Up, Up, And Away

Up.
From the ashes.
From the pain.
Away.
From defeat.
From the blame.
Up.
From darkness.
From the night.
Away.
From the terror.
From the fright.
Up.
Into daylight.
Into the sun.
Away.
Into the love.
Into the One.
Up.
Into freedom.
Into the heights.
Away.
Into the heavens.
Into the sky.
Up, up, and away -
- pheonix -
Rise!

    Great philosophy here! Love it. The simple meter makes the words take flight!
