I take flight

Once again

Like Icarus

Abscond from my chains

 

With my wings of wax and feather

And euphoria through my veins

My lungs swell with the wind

That I let carry me away

 

I soar high

Over the ocean and the earth

A laugh bubbles inside me

Full of mischief and mirth

 

From the poison, from the ashes

I have risen once more

I am being made anew

As I fly further ashore

 

I reach for the Sun

Unfurling under its warmth

Like the phoenix

Before I fall

 

Now read from bottom to top.
