Rising Like a Phoenix – By Cassandra Smith

Rising Like a Phoenix

~~~

Pushing, poking, pulling up old memories-

Rising from tombs

Cutting, clearing, catching bits & piece

Time stuck like- a broken clock

~~~

Dreams-squeezing past layers & layers of

Denial, despair, can’t do it -regret

Pushing, poking, pulling me up

Cutting away roadblocks, clearing paths

~~~

Contractions- pain, umbilical cord cut

Creating a new birthing- me

Throwing off indecision becoming:

Poet, writer, author- spilling truth on paper

~~~

Dead dreams reawakening, rising like-

A phoenix

No more pushing, no more prodding,

No more waiting…
