    Phoenix Rise

    Badger me blue,
    I'm not giving answers,
    To your loaded questions,
    You can't guess what my plan is,
    An innocent victim,
    You paint your role well,
    But I see through your lustre,
    Into a heart made in hell,
    Prick at my conscience,
    I won't fold like paper,
    I'm much stronger than that,
    I've a victory to savour,
    Over those who held back,
    Thinking I would never rise,
    But this phoenix, she knew better,
    Than to accept it as her life.
