a new breath from despair - phoenix rising

"i can see the truth, in pain's honest form
a death rejoiced, a life unknown."

when at times, my despair grows high
i keep with me, an honest nights cry
when darkness closes, and the night is long
i remember the sun, and keep my faith strong

a new day has come, with its own peace of mind
and then i can believe, love isn't that hard to find
i look around and see, the rays of a brand new day
shining brightly all around me, a hope for me to say:

"i can see the peace, in truth's honest form
a life rejoiced, a love reborn."

    I wish I could see and understand the last two sections. But the first two resonate so deeply within me, thank you for sharing this. It's beautiful.
