When you rise, you win.
Rise From the Ashes

Rise from the ashes of defeat
as you shed your cloak of despair.
Toss aside your helmet of shame,
turning to face the wind.

Rise from the ashes of guilt
from words you can’t take back.
The past is dead and gone;
you have been forgiven.

Rise from the ashes of ruin;
your history of hurt doesn’t define you.
Today is a new beginning,
a blank page to start anew.

Rise from the ashes like a phoenix,
holding your head up high;
Don your breastplate of faith
and chase your dreams once more.
