Do you ever feel, in times of trauma, agony, heartbreak, tragedy, or depression, that you are nothing but the embers of what you used to be, of what you will never become? Dammit, well, its not true! I mean, it may feel so true, the truest metaphor of them all. But the truth is that you have the chance to become a new, more vivid being because of what you've been through, because of what you've conquered. The fire may have burnt you down, but it didn't put you out. Rise from the ashes like the great fire bird. :). Be a Phoenix, always be a Phoenix. :).
