426 – Phoenix

You know
We never wanted
An audience
Or applause.

You know
We never begged
For attention
And fame.

Our wild life
Had no need
For fame
Or Validation.

Our freedom
Had no use
For onlookers
And judges.

We burned bright
Against the night sky,
A pair of wild
Shooting stars.

Flaming thru
The atmosphere
Like mad Phoenix
In the night.

A single spark
Is all it takes
To spread our wings of fire
And fly into the night…
