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.
