The birth of the lotus

No matter if the lotus takes birth in the mud,
When it grows, its glowing petals hide the impure water
And its thick leaves seem like hope
For the insects in the water.
Its fragrance, which is rare, spreads around the world.
But still everyone judges it by its first appearance
Rather than thinking of its qualities further.
It is said that your world is as big as you make it.
So, like the lotus that spreads blooming, fresh and fair in the morning sun,
Make your world as big as you want it to be,
Shine like the sun,
And show the world what you can be,
Just like the lotus shows its real beauty.
