Phoenix, Reborn from Ashes

I used to be selfish , narrow minded 
I never knew what it was like to truly leave my own wishes behind n- 
till my grandma was ill and crows took flight 
I hated my sister all my life, but I realized 
she needed someone who would protect her at night 
From the yelling, the crying, the sadness, the fright 
And I also found a love, another light 
All three I wanted to desperately keep by me away from their plights 
To sustain the handsome flame that’s glowing bright 

But it had already died that midsummers night 

I vowed the rest of my time to be more kind n - 

To seal the darkness, a new hope is ignited 
 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
