The Lord's Phoenix

The Lord's Phoenix

1 min 73 1 min 73

My skin turned pale white and immorality overcame me.


I slithered around like a snake and my soul caught fire. 


I was burning in a slow but steady fashion and singed pieces of me blew away with the wind that I walked against. 


My ashes began to scatter throughout the streets that I grew up on and the people that I considered my friends sat idle and watched me burn. 


They gathered around me and took comfort in the essence of flames that were turning me to dust. 


I grew smaller and smaller until I was down to the bone and eventually I was nothing more than what's left in a pit the morning after a campfire. 


I was certain that I had nothing left to give and I believed that I was better off dead. 


I then heard a voice like thunder that told me to rise. 


I was reborn from the ashes like a beautiful Phoenix. 


I emerged in tears, thanking the Lord for everything that I am and repenting for everything that I was. 


He then told me to stand up and to never forget what he had done for me. 


I put a gold crucifix around my neck, I wiped the dust off or my shoulders, and I walked down the road that the Lord had paved for me in forgiveness.
