A Poem by terry smith

as the twilight of your sorrow 
disappears into the vast horizon of dawn 
a new age fills your marrow 
the transformation has begun 
I see your phoenix 
rise up 
beneath the 
ashen cage 
of pain 
the ground 
beneath you 
as you break 
the chains 
that cause 
the shame 
I can hear you 
cry out 
this will 
be again 
I can see you rising 
shattered fragments scatter 
as they crumble to the ground 
lift your wings to feather 
as you leave without a sound 
left here with nothing 
but the 
darkness in 
your mind 
the chill became 
the comfort 
now you 
left that far behind 
no more 
living sleepless 
on the floor 
underneath boot heels 
ground up to the core 
revenge does 
not inspire you 
you just want to 
be free to soar 
bless your temple 
just let you live 
how you were meant to 
lift the weight 
of all that hate 
let it settle 
at their gate
