The Phoenix

Animal of Mystery

Powerful, disruptive

Timeless creature

Fragile and delicate however



In a show of flames

You disappeared

Shadows and dust


In legends, we didn’t believe

But you rose from the ashes

Stronger than ever

Whole, forever


Flapping your majestic wings

You flew at the speed of light over our indolent souls

Feathers of passion gathered again

And you took off to the most magnificient sky


Yes, this is your story firebird

No, you’ll never die…
