Oh muddy pond you are
So serene and calm
Filled with filth and despair
Unappealing even to plunge my feet in it
And yet I see the ability to support life in you.
Blooming from the muddy pond
Is a beautiful white lotus
Looking upon the heaven,
Growing strong regardless of her surroundings
Oh Lotus flower
You are the face of my country
You show me how to brim with happiness
Despite the sufferings I go through in my daily life
Day after day I aspire to grow like you
Regardless of my surroundings
