Ambrosia Ambrosia

Born To Be Cheerful, What May Come!

I am always cheerful; people say that.
I don't have any problems; they think like that.
I have everything; they assume like that.
O' my Lord,
Only we two know the ultimate truth!
Yes, me; your special creature-phoenix.
Born to be alive and cheerful, what may come!
O' my Lord, all your tests well taken.
You throw me among bed of thorns,
I will bloom as a cheerful red rose, with sweet fragrance.
You throw me in a desert,
I will bud as a beautiful cactus, amongst watery soft leaves.
You throw me in swamp,
I will blossom as a pink swamp rose, with tender petals.
You throw me in a dirty pond,
I will emerge as an enchanting lotus, without a single stain of dirt!
You throw me among hard rocky tiles,
I will peep through shyly; as a soft, evergreen grass!
Yes, my Almighty, willing to take all your test,
Only if you bestow me with all life skills and
Never diminishing faith in you! !
Oh yes, me; your own creature-phoenix, with never say die - tag! !
Born to be alive and cheerful, what may come!
