Smoke and Fire

Destruction and mayhem

Everything around you is crackling, tumbling, rumbling

Something’s burning alright

Leaping flames everywhere

Smoke and fire

Leaving you breathless

Gasping for air

Huddled up

Reaching out for something


Clasping for dear life


When all seems lost

I hear someone calling my name

I can barely see the Hand

That pulls me

Out of the pit of dust and smoke

Not a moment too soon

For this is the resurrection of the phoenix

Who riseth from ashes




“Hope rises like a phoenix from the ashes of shattered dreams.”
-S. A. Sachs
