A/N: This is another one of my poems from the POV of a Sailor Senshi: this time Mars. It's about Rei's "awakening" as a senshi.
Disclaimer: I don't own Sailor Moon (naturally).
A phoenix rises from the ashes of my soul,
And guides me to my destiny.
My passion ignites,
And I awaken to my calling.
The soldier is born from the fire:
A goddess of war,
With fear and panic as her companions.
She dwells inside my burning heart,
She calls my name,
And I answer.
We are one and the same,
This fire-deity and I.
She lends me her strength,
And guides me to my future.
From these flames,
I am born anew.
I become the fire soldier,
A goddess reborn.
- Note: "With fear and panic as her companions" is a reference to Rei's ravens Phobos and Deimos. They are named after the two Martian moons which in turn were named after the gods of fear and panic.
