I stood aflame

In a fiery ruby-red

Burned in an inferno

Of my own making

Hell flame, hell creature

Demon spawn I’ve been called

By the many

Who have never understood

Ash-covered tongue

Choked my screams of rage

As I parodied a phoenix

Renewed by the heat

Kneeling now, I am overcome

By the chance to be

More than my labels

More than what I was

-Kel Dayheart
