The Phoenix

See Kid Icarus, see her fly
Way up into the midnight sky,
Borne aloft on ephemeral wings
Her body soars, her whole heart sings.

For she is free among the stars,
No earthly chains, no prison bars
Can prevent her trajectory
Ever upward, strong as can be
Towards the face that beams at night
The golden sun’s reflected light.

She’s sought this light out once before,
She knew not then what lay in store,
That sunshine’s rays would bring such pain
As she crashed down to Earth again;
Despite falling she flies once more
An adventurer to her core.

Here in darkness she can now breathe;
By moonlight she starts to believe
In herself, what she may achieve
Daring to dream, not to deceive.
