Born From Ashes
By: Eve Estelle

Around me the world falls,
The walls are crashing down;
All light has been extinguished,
And in darkness shall I drown.
Destroyed, consumed, and fallen,
An era reduced to cinders.

Everything ends..
Everything dies..
But even from death,
Can life arise;
Born from ashes,
A blazing heart;
No longer do I live
In the lifeless dark.

From ruin we rise,
In blazing fire;
No more shall the future
Appear so dire.
In vitality's name,
Burn hot shall this flame,
Defeat me no more;
You'll not win this game.
