“A Rise From Near Certain Demise” (Poetry)

aspiration advocate phoenix desertsong

“A Rise From Near Certain Demise” is a poem about being at the bottom because of others keeping you down, but getting back up and proving your haters wrong.

I sit and ponder
Your red evil eyes
Don’t have to wonder
You plot my demise

Now it’s no surprise
You want me no more
Yet I will still rise
Despite what’s in store

Once I was full of self-doubt
I now fruitfully ponder
While you still wander about
In search of a new lover

Sure, keep your hatred coming
I won’t be held back, you’ll see
Slowly, surely becoming
What you swore I’d never be
