Like a Phoenix I have Risen

I’ve had enough
Now it’s time for some fun.
Oh no, did you hear that?
Well, then you better run.

I’ll let the thunder roar and lightning strike.
Because I’m not going home tonight.
And I will unabashedly cheat,
Because there’s no way I’ll give in to defeat.

I was the one surrounded by bullet holes,
when you were shamelessly trading human souls.
But from the rubble and ashes like a Phoenix, I have risen,
Broken free from the confines of my self-made prison.

I was caught in your crossfire,
Yet now I’m the spark you need.
I would have gladly taken a bullet for you, but now I think I’d rather let you bleed.

You made me walk through hellfire,
But I survived to come out the other side.
Now I’ll watch you burn down in my purgatory,
And I’ll make sure you don’t come out alive.

And so, I give you my word that
All your warriors will be dead before dawn.
And don’t you try to look for me,
Because dear, it’s too late and I’m already gone.

  1. Good poem. Explains the thoughts and feelings of finally breaking free of a person who was confined for long. Every person has a limit to tolerance while being pushed down continuously only to rise like a phoenix when the limits are crossed.

    1. Very VERY true. When thresholds are broken, hell tends to break loose, especially when it is fuelled by the pain and anger of a person who has been suppressed for too long.
      Thank you for reading! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ

  2. “And As my wondrous mind ,
    Ticks this beautiful resonating rhyme ,
    One with power one with a chime ,
    Superly as my Madame writes it ,
    Just so powerful just as ‘Unstoppable’ rhymes ,
    Now I wonder what my Madame be thinking all times ,
    Now as my Madame broke limitless chain undressed ,
    My Madame will fly beautiful in the blue array skyline πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„.”

    1. God damn THANK YOU SO MUCH!
      That means so much to me!

      PS. And it’s the Phoenix you want it to be, maybe it reminds you of ‘The Hunger Games’ and maybe it reminds others of Dumbledore’s Fawkes.
      It is what you want it to be β€οΈπŸ™‚

  4. And then these lines hold so much strength that it actually imbibes a feel of being strong in your readers. “But from the rubble and ashes like a Phoenix, I have risen,
    Broken free from the confines of my self-made prison.”
    A beautifully presented poem! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀
    Power to your pen! And rise above all like the pheonix that wouldn’t fall.
    Btw, may I say one more thing? I got the vibe of Linkin Park’s Burn It Down in this poem of standing up and rising high. Are u inspired by the song as well?

    1. I am beyond happy to hear that reading my poem made you feel strong, that is something I’ve always wanted to do.
      I haven’t heard Linkin Park’s Burn It Down yet but since my poem reminds you of it I will definitely hear it now.
      Thank you yet again for your kind words Charisma, they really mean a lot to me! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ
