Phoenix (Madison Elizabeth Holland- Lafayette, LA)

Make a list, darling
Of things you love
I'll help you burn it
In the backyard
Here's a lighter
What do your thoughts
Look like in your head
You know you have to
Let them go
If they're things
You truly care about
For whatever reason
Arbitrary, but that's the rule
Apparently it's proven
So tell me dearest
What are these things
That are extensions of
Your soul
Hopes dreams desires
The things that validate
The person you are
Flowers kitties seahorses
Dreamcatchers and sundresses
Books and fantasy tales
You and me
Let's burn it all
Burn the world
And like phoenixes
Rise from the ashes and flames
Whole, untouched, made new.
