Who am I?
I have never eaten fruit from the Tree,
so my days are countless,
I thrive well for a thousand years,
my kind only lives one at a time,
I ‘am also known as the firebird,
my colors are of exotic bright orange, deep red, solid gold,
I reside in the Egyptian city, Heliopolis,
my song is beautiful,
in sorrow my tears can heal any wound,
my cry brings courage to the righteousness,
while it strikes fear in the wickedness,
and I embody the spirit of the Sun,
my wings are the Sun rays,
I rise as the Sun rises,
I die as the Sun dies,
I die in a fiery destruction of flames,
then I arise from the ashes,
in the most glorious renewal and resurrection.
Who am I?
I ‘am the powerful Phoenix.
