I am a Phoenix

I am a phoenix
I rise from the ashes
And I ascend into triumphant skies

I approached you with an earnest open heart
Only to be sucker-punched time and again
Your iron fist straight to my solar plexus

But I am a phoenix

I’ve learned your actions only reflect on you
My innocence and adoration
Never merited your abusive nasty response

But I rise from the ashes

It took years of reflection and wisdom
To know I could not cause your viciousness
You can only ever hurt yourself

And now I ascend into triumphant skies
