Ex Cineribus Resurgam

Medussaby HAMM22 Feb 2014

What old sage spoke
of life after death,
rebirth through sanctifying fire,
flight to the stars?

Did his eyes hold true
or was this creature mere illusion,
flight of fancy in the dark recess of his mind?

A question I fear to answer.
Does it matter?

Dreams, hopes and aspiration
Baptized anew in fantastic heat
Imagined or not
Intangible but made real.

Mind of madness,
flickering images,
old horrors burnt away.

Rampaging flames fuse and strengthen wings
flying to an unknown future.
Journey through calm and through storm.
Safe and sure
a mythic savior carries me.
