Description: This is about freeing yourself from the criticism of others and allowing yourself to love who you really are and not the reflection of yourself that others approve of. This is really open to interpretation as I was just letting my heart and soul pour out. Criticisms, thoughts, opinions welcome!
The Phoenix -------------------------------------------
There are words we don't give flight
There are wounds we don't dress
Our hearts may arrest
But a fist we won't pry open
Words left unsaid, what is said is misunderstood
Slaying a dragon is no sorrow
But to opening our hearts we say tomorrow
The arrows of others' criticism we fear
To speak out of turn, oh what a sin!
The shackles to which we bind ourselves restrict our freedom
Let the Phoenix rise from the ashes
Let creativity abound
the marks of our limitations be silenced
To be who we are should never be conjured
What others see is just a reflection
No need to be a drone to match the current fashion
I find this art you have created very well presented. I extreamly relate to what you have said. It is true that in life we all play puppets to society or even our loved ones. I write about it all the time. It is so depressing to me that we all go through what you have written and never change a thing in our lifes. Every one reads into poetry or other creations differently and i definitly enjoyed this. I do not know if you created it with alot of emotions but i got alot of emotions out of it. Beautifully written.
