Another one shot-set after rainbow rocks but before friendship games


I ran onto the roof, the clock ticking. Today was a beautiful day. My friends and I were having fun, laughing. I sat against the tower, watching the sun go down. I know that the rest of the school don't appreciate me, but maybe one day they will.

The sky glowed red and orange, the rays of sun wilting like a dying flower, as it sunk lower in the sky.
Now would be a good time, right?

I sighed. I stood up, humming softly.

"Power
Was all I desired(I desired, all I desired)," I sang
"But all that grew inside of me
Was the darkness I aquired."

I sighed. "But when I began to fall
and I lost the path ahead
That's when your friendship found me
and it lifted me instead!"

I ran. "Like a phoenix burning bright
In the sky," I wanted to touch the sky.
"I'll show there's another side to me
You can't deny." I wanted to prove I've changed.

"I may not know what the future holds
But hear me when when I say
That my past does not define me
'Cause my past is not today."

My mind flashed back to a memory of me destroying the pictures of the old me.

"Ambition
Is what I believed
Would be the only way
to set me free.

But when it disappeared
And I found myself alone,"

I thought of my friends. Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Princess Twilight.

"And that's when you came and got me
And it felt like I was home!"

I ran. "Like a phoenix burning bright
In the sky," I wanted to touch the sky.
"I'll show there's another side to me
You can't deny." I kept wanting to prove I've changed.

"I may not know what the future holds
But hear me when when I say
That my past does not define me
'Cause my past is not today!" I rose in the air, wings coming out of my back, flying over Canterlot. I held the final high note until I ran out of breath, as the sun's rays finally said goodbye. I was a phoenix, reborn, restarted, repented.
