Flames and disintegration
Death and decomposition

But I shall rise,
Beyond your horizon, far above your reach.


Rebirth and revival
Resurgence andย revitalization

I promise you
I shall rise.


Break the bonds,
Flee right before your naked eyes, into the blotched sky

But I shall rise.



In Greek mythology, phoenix is a long lived bird(approx 1400 yrs) that dies in a show of flames and combustion. And then regenerates itself by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.

The question that is to be asked here is ‘Can we become another phoenix, rising from the remains of our ashes to become a stronger, better us? Can we do that?’
