Rising from this bed of ash,
I wake to find the darkness.
Sucking in a hidden breath,
I renew the life within me.
Hope is mine,
To spring eternal.
Daring against my destined fate,
I open wings so newly birthed.
Witness the depth of my power,
As the dark rises to overcome this flight.
Again will be the mind once broken,
Forever will beat the once stilled.
Death has lost its gaping smile,
Upon my will did it break its teeth.
