"Be Happy. It's one way of being wise" - Collette

Tongues of fire
surround me
and try to lick my body.
The building burns
from the explosion.
The Phoenix calls me.
Its hawk-like talons
and seven foot wingspan
intimidates me.
Wings of flame engulf me.
Heat scorches my body.
I think to myself,
How am I alive?
