Hidden in the mud

The strong stem rises

Pushing through darkness

Moving to the light

Be the lotus

Rise out of your troubles

Shine and throw light

Create beauty around

The muddy water

Cleans the petals bright

Not a trace of muck

On the smooth surface

Be the lotus

Let nothing stick

Positive or negative

To your smooth mind

Submerging in the night

Resurrecting in the morning

The seed living without water

For a thousand years

Persist persevere

Re-emerge, restart

Now is just a moment

In your infinite life

Each petal unfurls

One at a time

Bringing to perfection

The full bloom

Slowly unfold

Your primordial nature

Bringing to actualisation

Your real divine Self
