My Lotus

In persian my full name Niloofar means “Lotus Flower”. It has a huge symbolic meaning for me and my life!
Couple of nights ago, after a personal breakthrough, I wrote this!

I am the flower
that is blossoming.
And as my petals
rise above the murky water,
I see my reflection
looking back at me.

My eyes tell a story
of a spiritual warrior
in disguise.
Soft and delicate
on the outside,
yet so deep and intense
in my core.

I come up for air
as I pensively
look at my life’s journey…
Where I was
to where I’m going…
To which I realize:
No Mud, No Lotus!
