As the weight of the world consumes me
And I lay quietly sinking into oblivion
A faint voice whispers in my ear,
“Who are you?
I have never met you before.
I’m sure I would remember you.
A child so lost and broken.
Where did you come from ?”
The voice continues as I sink deeper and deeper
Feeling my body consumed with fire and finally
Overtaken as my eyes close
Only to awaken anew
And to the voice I answer,
“I am a descendant of you.
No longer lost and broken.
I have risen from the ashes of the Phoenix.
Rejuvenated and Reborn.
