From The Ashes

By Damien Knight

Violent flames rise
As I push from the ashes
The ashes of lies
Given to me through the ages
By people who belittled me
I clean my wings of soot
I look out upon a silent sea
Of dazzling dancing  fires
And I wait here charred
By the stings of torment
But I continue on scarred
To help those in need
Of my passionate embrace
And one day I will find you
And you will find grace
