Birth of Rage.


by Candace Nola

Born of ashes, Born of dust.
Born of blood, of rage, of scorn.
Phoenix rise. Phoenix fly. Phoenix die.

Cold heartless cruel desolation.
Child of hatred, Child of war.
Terrorized soul , forced isolation.
Flames of ice. Hatred borne.

Phoenix rise. Phoenix dies.
Ash from flame. Desire wanes.
Burning wings, glowing brighter.
Red gold molten fire.
Slow burn, torrid desire.
Nuclear rage, towering spires.

Phoenix fly.
Phoenix cry.
Tears of fire pouring down.
Burning out , destroy the ground.
Phoenix rage. Phoenix splayed.
Ripped open, beat and bound.

Phoenix cry.
Phoenix die.
From the ashes....embers glow.
Phoenix still.
Phoenix grows.
