Out of the ashes

Strong, capable, determined.

My power is my own.

My strength is my own.

My intelligence my own.

I am rising

not looking back

I will not be a monument

a pillar of salt

a tombstone

to mark the grave of regret

I will fly.

I will evolve.

I will rise higher without the weight to hold me down.

The albatross is cut from my neck

Leviathan conquered.

Head held high

arms  to the sky.

I am rising.
