The Phoenix

A poem written by one of our team after serving a custodial sentence, after personal difficulties in finding his feet, then finding Crossroads Trust.

I am the Phoenix,
I rise from the burnt,
My feathers are brighter,
My lessons are learnt.
Tougher and stronger
This I have grown,
I burn with a heat,
Resilience I’ve shown.
I’ll never be beaten,
I won’t do the same,
I’ll rise from the ashes,
Again and again.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
