The Flight


Life’s agonies can be so profound
That might burn you in Inferno’s hall.
Lift yourself above the ground,
Every time from a deep fall.

You are a mythical Phoenix ,in disguise
Resurrect yourself from the ashes
Transform yourself from the clouds, so dense!
Reigniting your fire, giving off flashes.

Your past can haunt you in testing times,
Wear equanimity and hold your intrpid strings.
Raise your head to see the light, so sublime,
And take a flight by burning your wings.

The flight to the future from Karmic present,
The flight of persevere life, so meant.

P.S.-Tried to create this sonnet with a rhyming pattern of ababcdcdefefgg.
In response to writing201:Poetry.

    Really wonderful choice of words! I love the theme behind it of rising after fall and flying despite burns 😉

    Another engaging piece again. I think you left off a letter in your one before the last word of the second line in the third stanza.
