Tears of the PhoenixWhen the night welcomes the day,
Incidentally a bird emerges completely new,
Beautiful as never before
And feels infinitely free.
Born out of the ashes,
With majestic plumage,
He spreads the wings and
Gently descends to the ground.
The beats of his wings blow away the old ashes,
Make room for new things.
His cries are blood-curdling.
His will is inflexible.
He creates something new from the old,
Sacrifices himself to the fire,
To rise again from the ashes,
Knowledge and truth are his vices.
He sees where other people do not see.
He feels where other people do not feel.
He helps where other people do not help.
Full of strength he brings confidence,
Leads strays to the light.
His tears heal wounds.
When touching someone, anxiety will disappear.
To help, to heal, to carry a burden –
Always, even in the future.
Phoenix weeps tears of knowledge.
He plunges himself into the depths again for others.
The heat and glow do not disturb him,
He burns again, suffers and dies

It's all over the newsIt's all over the news, bad news.
It comes and goes in heavy waves, and
your aunt has cancer.
It seems lately that all you do is lose
yourself, always seeing graves because
it's all over the news. Bad news:
this year is still ongoing. It's true
it feels unstoppable, and by the way
your aunt has cancer—
a snake-noose tightening grooves
into her neck and throat, giving it
its all. Over the news, bad news,
you have coffee and chatter moodily—
because what else can you do when told
your aunt has cancer—
Stare silent at the menus, choose
the easiest meal to stomach, because
it's all over. The news, bad news:
your aunt has cancer.
