rising up


On Life and Living


I've been through the fires,

Flames that blister-burned.

I'm left with reminder-scars,

Of the lessons I've learned.


And from those gray ashes,

I arose up, and I flew-

Away from the searing pain,

Of all I've been through.


Stronger than ever, I emerged,

Wiser, have I now, been made,

With a soul forged of embers,

For hell's price, have I paid.
