The Lotus

~One from the archives.  Enjoy!~

I felt stuck in the muck
face down in the dirt
couldn't see the sun
wondering how I'd get past the hurt

I but then I decided
I was growing in the dark
I had to fight my way up
I had to make my mark

Pulling myself through the mud
the dank, the damp,
I fought to turn to the sun
I fought like a champ

As I turned, it saw the light
it was beckoning me to keep going
I couldn't stop the fight now
the desire was overflowing

As I turn over a new leaf
I've finally made it to the top
I've grown through all the dirt
I couldn't be stopped

The experience was tough
even though it took some time
there is growth beyond the odds
the journey was just sublime
