I am the Phoenix rising

Burn myself into a cinder
I’ll be rising, ever higher
Into fire, wings igniting
Ash is falling, I am rising

Smoke and blood
Snow and ash
Water, fire
Soul and body

I am the Phoenix rising

Star to star
We’ll pay our dues
Then be reborn
And love anew

I am the Phoenix rising

Tiny Buried Star

I want you all to know
I want you all to know
That I was there and saw a face
That I was there and saw a face
I came upon a little house
I came upon a little house
And well within that little house
A tiny, buried star
A star kept cradled in a bed
And deep within that burning bed
A mote of fear
A mote of love
A brightly burning life.
