Born in mud, dark, wet, and cold
Never having the feeling of being very bold.
Yet you start growing, moving up and out
No longer seeming like a small tiny sprout.
Away you go, almost reaching air
Blooming wild and crazy all about, going everywhere.
You’ve now hit light
Such a calm and peaceful sight.
Never again stuck in mud that is dull
On my birthday I finally got a tattoo! I’d always wanted one but I wanted to make sure it had meaning behind it. While searching for one to get I came across a lotus flower with the meaning of the flower, which is posted above, I thought the meaning was beautiful and it fit perfectly with me and my syndrome. Being born different you go through hard times and struggle, but in the end you come out stronger and are a better person because of it!
The lotus is now like my personal mascot 🙂 and one day while telling my friend that I write poems she told me I should write a lotus poem. I was surprised the thought had never occurred to me before! Immediately I began brainstorming and finally found the right words! Hope you like! xoxo
