From Ashes

From your ashes again you will rise
from the cloak and armour you so despise.

Whatever ember beneath the smoke may still reside
within your heart, you shall not suppress or try to hide

See your mind freed and hands untied
take what you’ve always yourself denied

Breathe life into slumbering ember before extinguished
Be certain before allowing last hope to be relinquished

The ember still hot and grudgingly alight
It is too easy to give in without a fight

Mai L. Nissen, 2013
