No Mere Mortal
She believed herself a mere mortal
As she was incapable of navigating
the sinister labyrinth.
Until one day, she realized with unimaginable joy
that her whole life,
each time the labyrinth had attempted to strangle her,
devour and swallow her,
The times she had felt she had died,
had been annihilated, destroyed, crushed,
she burst into flames
and grew wings,
and she soared gracefully above the deadly labyrinth.
Her name was Phoenix.
