A Message from Phoenix


      The Phoenix out of ashes rose,

to fly again, the legend goes.

Could it be true, do you suppose?

     Or just another fairy tale,

told upon a grander scale?

To comfort those in need, who fail.

     To see life in it’s breadth and scope,

and to offer them, a speck of hope.

That all’s not lost, if you can cope.

     With, what today has given you,

then rest yourself, when it is through.

To rise again, and begin anew!
