Charred skeletal remains
Haphazardly they stand
Symbolizing a two pronged end
Shelter and inevitable death

The water like rain
Strangling the flames
The soft tears falling
Joyous of the fresh start

The end of a home
Consumed by structural malady
The release of willing prisoners
Able to start anew

Backs are turned
Lives are freed
Never more restrained
And the phoenix will rise
