I Wish I Become A Phoenix


I lay scattered before time helplessly
Which I see slipping away very slowly
from my unwilling hand gradually!

What should I call it? My inability?
Ignorance? Irresponsibility?
Weakness? Destiny?

Is that my failure to say my need?
Is that because I didn't greed?
Is that because I didn't plead?

Well, now I shout with my might
IF what I didn't do was alone right
I'll do them now to give a strong fight.

    i was going to end Basic with the line- some things are worth fighting for even if yoiu take the risk of being alone. Palas, i notice a gradual resolution of conflict in the poems i read today. thoughtful.10

    you are already a PHOENIX, BACK WTH A BANG.
