Written by an Awakening Center client who wishes to remain anonymous. We thank you for your vulnerability and admire your creativity.
I know what it’s like.
To run, to hide, and be full of shame, and you think you’re the only one to blame.
I know what it’s like, to hit rock bottom and spiral back into the pit of fire that you’ve been trying so hard to drag yourself out of.
You’re empty and cold.
You think that there’s nothing left, so you sink—deeper and deeper.
But soon, things won’t be the same. I can see it.
I know what it’s like, to crawl out of the embers, even as the walls get steeper and steeper.
The only choice that’s left is to pick yourself up, and watch as the fire dismembers.
The fire’s crying for your oxygen, but you’re finally breathing for yourself.
I know what it’s like, finally, to become a phoenix.
I’m renewed and I’m burning like a fire. I refuse to be consumed. I will no longer be misunderstood, misused, and abused.
So, trust me. I know what it’s like when I say that you too, can finally become a phoenix.
There’s fire in your eyes, waiting to escape. Let your wings be free.
Let your voice be heard.
Don’t let your heart be tamed in times of pain and tricks.
People are waiting to see the magic that has yet to unfold, because, you too, can become a phoenix.
