The Phoenix

Like the phoenix from the ashes
You’re the bird once dead that soars
Above the circumstances
Of the problems that were yours
That attitude you have displayed
Since the firing of the gun
Has helped you have the determination
To start as you mean to go on
Keep planning and persuading
Keep believing don’t have doubts
That the certainty you’re feeling
Will turn your life about
You need a testimony
That shows you’ve lived out your advice
That the one who is now speaking
Hasn’t lived by the roll of the dice
So stand up and be counted
You’ve waited a long time for this
It’s time to show what you’re made of
And to greet each day with a kiss
