Ashes of the Pheonix


Lost in desperation, I am constantly searching for inspiration,

Seeking motivation, I need a little persuation to keep me in the mindset I was rasied in.

As I look in the mirror I'm staring at the enemy,

I'm no friend to me.

Funny how we can be our own worst enemies.

We pull oursleves down, we take the plunge, and then we drown.

I pray the Lord helps me keep my head above the surface, I'm tired of asking "What? What is my purpose?"

Before I can be myself I gotta defeat myself. Allow me to repeat myself:

In order to be myself I gotta defeat myself.

Like a pheonix I shall rise from my ashes, ready to shine again for the masses.

Again I will soar, on wings untorn. I am reborn.
