Lotus in a Pond

That Lotus in a Pond Analogy,
Universe show me how to Be it
Show me how to keep on living
With courage and graceful grit

Show me how I can keep my peace
When those around me lose theirs
Show me how to navigate life
Without succumbing to its cares

Show me how to look up in grace
When I am surrounded by madness
Show me how to open my heart
And let it bloom with gladness

Show me how to thrive in life
Not just merely survive and cope
Show me how to breathe out fear
And breathe in love and hope

Show me how to bloom in joy
Like the lotus continues to do
Embedded in what’s happening around
But treating each moment as new
