The burnished image... I refuse to accommodate it
Now I light the pyre of my past
Watching the flames burn higher in retribution
For it's time to be a Phoenix
Burn down
And resurrect
From the ashes
So that tomorrow I am unchained from manacles
Of clocks, time and tide, opinions and judgements
I am reinventing myself
Letting the end pave way for a new beginning
So that in the promise of a new dawn
Spreading its crimson plumes in the horizon
My wings too shall be ready to take flight
No longer an innocent gullible dependent girl
But a strong young woman with perfectly painted red lips
Ready to face the world on my own
So that I shall never need another hand to hold on to
And dare to take the untrodden path
Speak fierce truths without an inkling of doubt
And in the resurrection will come a fierce revival
An identity so intimidating that they wouldn't dare to question it
Nothing can be imposed upon me now
For today I declare myself boundless and infinite
The end is where I have found a new beginning
