The sun shone down on the Phoenix, and she bursts into a ball of flames leaving nothing but a pile of ashes. But from the ashes, the Phoenix is resurrected, and she goes on to live her life anew.
Resurrection: the act of causing something that had ended or been forgotten or lost to exist again, to be used again, etc. – Merriam Webster Dictionary
From the Ashes
I must first become dead before I can be reborn. I was dead. Dead on the inside with little hope of resuscitation. My will was shattered and spread across a barren land, but from the skies came a single drop.
A single drop of forgotten hope that spread through the cracks of infertile soil. I began to cry with remembrance of what once had been. Tears and rain flowed through me like a river. And then… the sun began to shine.
I feel it. The warmth of life returning to my veins.
An old life dead and gone –I am resurrected.
