From the Lotus to the Jungle

By:  A YSA writer


Dear Jungle,

I love you.

There are many glorious flowers here

With many scents and sizes

But you have made me unique, a thousand petaled mystery

Oh Jungle, Oh Jungle

All the other plants come from the fine rich soil

But you have spawned my grace from the murky depths

of the grueling mud

How amazing you are, oh Jungle

And even among the other lotus brothers and sisters

You have made me my own brand

I am forever grateful

Oh great Mother/Father Jungle

When my time is up

I return to you

Really, I am nothing

but an extension of you

We all are.
