PHOENIX

PHOENIX You tried to choreograph my life Cajoled me to dance to your fancies rife While in every step you tried best To see me mutely obey at your behest With my happiness buried, dreams shattered But I have made it impossible to render me battered For my soul is fortified by scars of plenty whip-lashes You try to burn, like the phoenix I rise from the ashes With propriety I know now to shield my dignity And fight alone with grit, on life's stage every malignity! 17th December 2016 For Laura Loo's Contest Quote prompt -II

Very strong poem. The message is straight to the point and a good take on the theme. Congratulations on your win and, if there is a sense of autobiography in the poem, congratulations on your conclusion. Well done, Kai
