The Phoenix

I went up in flames
Scorched by my shames
Left a pile of ash
As my soul did dash

My life wasn't done
I returned to the sun
Had time to reflect
Upon my defect
Mistakes that I made
Would begin to fade
From most others' minds
Not so far from mine

Lessons I learned
I wouldn't be burned
Again from the past
This time it will last

I'll fly over Earth
Just watch my rebirth
I will rise again
From here I begin

So no looking back
Except to reflect
On what will be right
And now -- I take flight
