This phoenix-like creature is Farphyni (who represents my art/creativity and communication) in her “purest” form.

I have to cross the line,
just to remember where it lays.
To find myself again,
I needed distance from everything
and so I found myself again.

Now I won’t back down,
I won’t run, won’t hide.
Because I found something I can’t deny,
while wandering at the borders.

I can’t fill my cup, until I empty all it has.
I can’t understand what lays ahead, if I don’t understand the past.

I’ll never fly again until I’m jumping off the cliff.
And my art can’t truly be free until I’ve given up everything what is expected from me.

Now I won’t back down,
I won’t run, won’t hide.
Because I found something I can’t deny
while wandering at the borders.

For a while I thought I could never truly live my art again,
but then I found a plan:
I’ll sneak out, while they sleep,
burn everything down
and fly of in the night.
I’ll be free, be myself again,
and start over the rest of my life.
When I’m gone, I’ll stay gone
– but you can see me: shining in the sky.
It’s not too late, I have the rest of my life.

Because I won’t back down,
I won’t run, won’t hide,
as I found something I can’t deny.

I can’t deny my roots, I can’t deny where I started, where I came from, who I am, what art meant to me – and still means.
I can’t deny myself – and you can’t deny me neither.

The background shows what art meant to me – and still does.
