Why are you withering to ashes?
For I see your teared debris fluttering all around,
What has lifted the weight of your pride?
What has halted the flow of your stride?
Why have your emotions dried?
Why can’t you gulp that sore lump in your throat?
Why can’t you feel, why can’t you cry?
I am your shadow, from me don’t dare you hide?
For I am a part of you, not just in light,
Today I have deceived the darkest cloud of despair,
To remind you of you and to be by your side.
Don’t forget the unfulfilled dreams as of now,
For they are like sand dust they will stick back again!
It does not matter how much you have lost
For what is lost, someday you might gain,
So collect your pieces and gather them together,
Combust your sadness to fuel of crude desires,
Let them burn and fade in a fierce raging fire,
And from your burnt past, a new beginning should arise,
For I know, you are a phoenix, from your ashes you must rise!
