From these Ashes

Today I rise

A former self in disguise

I must own my mistakes and move on

From these ashes I create a new song

I must find the strength from within

From these ashes I must forge a new path to begin

The past is gone

Am I to relive it?

Or am I to go on?

The truth to finding our way

Let go of what’s gone 

Begin again, begin a new day

Attachment is misery

Buddhist and Taoist will agree

As in the Western world

The apple doesn’t fall

Too far from the tree

How sick must I be

If I stumble and I fall?

Never to get up

And continue to crawl?

Forgive us of our folly

Forgive us of this pain

If you want to forgive yourself

Dust off your ashes and begin again
