The Lotus Flower Poem
A little seed beneath the surface

The seed feels safe and sound,

But in reality the seed is stuck

In the darkness underground


If only the seed knew

How it would bloom if it just saw the light,

The little seed confuses happiness with the familiar mud,

Because the mud keeps the seed snug n’tight


And don’t blame the mud

For keeping the seed trapped,

The seed should be those whom is blamed

For choosing the mud to adapt


The seed, at any point

Can choose to escape,

But only on its own motivation 

May the seed allow its lotus petals to take shape

The style I chose to paint these girls is inspired by my favorite artist Johnathan Green. His artwork depicts Gullah scenes of the south, but honestly growing up when I saw the big hats and the big dresses with dark complexions, I also saw myself in those paintings. “The Gathering” depicts my ideal dining scene. Everyone gets to share conversation amongst each other, and everyone g
