Rise, Phoenix, Rise

Response to a GIF prompt from Jonathan


Rise, phoenix, rise
To the zenith in the skies
You’re the freest as you fly
You’re surprised
But you survived

So rise, phoenix, rise
Undefeated, couldn’t die
An elite who dared to strive
More than tried
You made the stride

Yes rise, phoenix, rise
As you bleed and as you cry
Lay the edict as your prize
You decide
For you are wise

Oh rise, phoenix, rise
Antecedent was your pride
I can see it in your eyes
You’ve arrived
Oh phoenix, rise
