Being a phoenix became my super power

There was a time when I used to 'sing' this poem to myself daily. I sang until my heart was so filled with the belief that I could heal, I did. I stopped hating myself for 'failing' and began to love my resilience. Continually rising out of ashes requires immense strength. Being a phoenix became my super power, and instead of using it to reinvent myself for other people, I used my super-power to become the person I wanted to be. I still sing this poem to myself as a reminder of all that I have become and have yet to uncover.
