I put pen to paper and it still didn't change anything,
I was still submerged in a sea of hopelessness,
In a sea that saturated me till I couldn't breathe,
That sea was my future,
I couldn't bear it anymore, I had to get away.
Looking at the mirror in front me,
I realised how sad my life was,
The once bubbly girl was dead,
And now stood her shadow,
A shadow that overshadowed even her happiness.
I wondered how I had become this shadow of a being,
The answer was simple!!
It stood right in front of me,
I had allowed others inner ambitions to guide me,
I had been living a lie.
Looking at my reflection, I made a decision,
I was no longer going to let people dictate my life,
I was going to live it the way I saw it fit,
The days of following other people's ambitions
Were gone, it was no more.
The phoenix that I was meant to be,
Had been awakened and I no longer wanted to be sad,
I was now going to be happy because happiness,
Was what I needed to be light and avoid loneliness.
A phoenix I became,
A phoenix rose that day!
