The Challenge of the Phoenix

The Challenge of the Phoenix

This is for all who are experiencing the harsh pain of a necessary downfall,
where everything you've all been working for
seems to vanish into the air
faster than the beat of your heart.

This is for all who feel so demolished,
after giving it your best shot -
when you aspire to become the champion
but you end up getting the least of the prize.

This is for all who hopes to win a particular aspect of the game of life,
but you do not know if you still have the chance of winning
but yet you keep on having faith.

This is for all who seemingly
declines in everything they thought
they are the best.

This is for all who shall keep on having faith,
increase their efforts exponentially,
and for those who believe that they can rise up from the dust,
spread the flaming wings of passion, desire and will,
and become the most beautiful phoenix
ever to live in this world.
Action is what differentiates reality from fantasy.

thanksfor the reply! i really appreciate it. but still i wouldn't want to change anything. i think the dust represents a much more grave scenery of hardship and challenges, being dirt and all. but still, thanks!
