“RISING LIKE PHOENIX”

She’s been dismissed
belittled
considered a freak and overly sensitive
‘though she believes
something’s got to give
 
She’s been heartbroken
fooled by promises then abandoned
but it has taught her to remain independent
self-reliant
‘though it’s sometimes okay to reach out to others
willing to help her
to become better
 
She’s been taken for granted
left feeling jaded
with piles of debt
but hey, nothing can hold her back
They can do what they like
she’ll put up her best fight
again and again, with all her might
 
All in all,
she’s made a promise to herself
despite all the crashes
and how she has to burn
she must always rise again
like Phoenix from ashes…
