Phoenix (the bird of Fire)
Rising from the ashes, you spread your wings to fly
Reaching now for those final dreams, belief will never die
A meltdown from a single kiss,
reshaping fate with infernal twist.
Scourging fire to purge the bane,
A massive spark to never wane.
Heat waves galore in hot pursuit,
Firestorms to follow suit.
Passion hotter than the scorching sun,
Molten dances pursue in fiery run.
Tears of battle to singe the root,
Razing flames to trail the soot.
Beautiful and so glorious, the eternal bird of fire
Soaring up into the sun, leaving behind the pyre
Dreams are now your destiny; reach with all your might
You’re a powerful inferno, ablaze and in full flight
Yesterday is over, today has just begun
The sky is now your playground your home is now the sun
Destiny is in your grasp, forget the doubts and fears
Your flame will burn eternally for all remaining years
There will be times of doubt, and moments of pure sorrow
But one thing that is ever true, you’re the angel of tomorrow
Blazing Phoenix and beast of fire,
May your path birth a new desire.
