I love the story of the phoenix.
I love the image of a phoenix.
I even love the city of Phoenix.
I am just tired of living according to one. The theatre of sinking to the depths, only to rise again has grown weary. It is no longer entertaining. It is not longer a route I wish to follow.
It is simply too draining, too exhausting to continually rise from the depths of darkness. Life is meant to be lived and experienced in the light.
Contrast has served its purpose but the purpose is now completed.
Thank you Phoenix for your entertaining drama. You will not be needed any more.
