The Phoenix

The Phoenix


Born from ember,
That's what I am.
Born by crystallized blood,
Born with the heart
Of the phoenix.

Iron pierces my heart
When tears hit my chest,
But my pain
It's green.
You cannot hurt me.
When your bullets
Ricochet off my heart
You will feel the glow
Of my strength.

Your words,
Your stick and stones,
Your will to strike me down
It ignites the fire,
The will to be ember
The will to be more than possible.
I am more than bulletproof
From your hate.
I'm more than diamond
From your iron.
I'm more than titanium
To your power.
I'm unprecedented,
I'm ubiquitous.
I'm more than human.
I am the phoenix.


As you can tell, I have seen Maleficent: Mistress of Evil this week. For this reason, I will be making odes to my favorite Disney Villains.
