The Lotus Girl

They made her the target of their bloody malicious game.
They bullied- unfair allegations, personal-attacks, insulted her name...

The ignorant mean haters had no idea of her talent, creativity or power.
She survived & thrived even in muck; just like the Lotus flower!

Lotus-Flower

She continued to blossom & earned more support, knowledge & fame!

  3. The similarity brought out between the girl and the lotus flower is apt.
    The virtuous are not tainted by the surrounding circumstances but bloom to their full potential

  4. Luckily she had the strength in her own abilities and could achieve her dreams regardless of the malicious taunts. I love the comparison with a lotus whose beauty is achieved by consuming the muck beneath it.
