The Phoenix

We can't change the past but we can always start anew....

We can’t change the past but we can always start anew….if we choose to.

This is an older piece I wrote a few years ago as I tried to find solace and purpose in all the negative circumstances that now filled my life during that time. I wanted to remind myself I could find my path even if I had to forge it myself. I struggled finding purpose in my life and I think these words accurately portray those feelings of sorrow and desperation. I needed to tell myself it would be okay, things would work themselves out, and I needed to stay the course, even if I truly didn’t believe those words in those dark moments…


In the end, all is lost

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Point A to Point B

What is the meaning in between?

Do we awaken more than once?

A rebirth but at what cost?

The phoenix arises, searching for solid ground

But sometimes, it seems there is none to be found

Fight the good fight,

Even when no reward is in sight,

And happiness will be there for your delight.
