Lotus

The idea that the lotus blossoms in a dung heap

isn’t true
they grow in water
pools and ponds of it
They can grow in a pile of shit
just not as well
So much for Tough Love

You proclaim you grew in the pooey murk
and presto it transported you to a pond
With lucky koi and dragonflies
and it all flows in easily now
How did you get there?
Was it magic shit?
You hypocrite

I don’t think
it’s necessary to suffer
to be a better person
or have a better life
or learn something
it doesn’t have to be hard
or damaging in the process

The truth is
the pond exists for us all
there’s more water than crap
on this planet
no need to look up and away
just find the pond
and your heart to lead on.
