UPDATE TO POST:
I'm finally putting this piece up for sale - it'll go into an art show this weekend with my parents as my agents as I can't be there personally. Wish me luck! As part of the representation of this work of art, I decided to also write a poem to go along with it. So here it is:
Out of the fire I rise,
renewed and rejoicing.
Soaring above the ashes
confirming that life is eternal.
Once again flying towards the sky
embracing the gift of new beginnings.
