I’m the King Protea, even the Rose respect me

Have you seen Protea flower of South Africa?
….•*•.¸¸. ♥

Who am I?
I am the king Protea

Am indigenous in South Africa
Thus I’m an African
I was born in the driest South African regions

Yebo Yes!!!
I’m the king Protea

I’m not just like any other plant or flower, I’m unique, natural
And realistic, with precious and beautiful green leaves,
With pink and white coloured leaves which beautifies me
Thus I’m special and unique,
Even the rose respect me,

Yebo Yes!!!
I’m the king Protea

I value myself as the king protea
Then why I have to let thee bee to squeeze my honey?
Why should I praise the rose for her favourable conditions she belongs to?
Why should I behave so negatively because?
Because thus demeaning my state to be whom am I

Yebo Yes!!!
I am the king Protea

I won’t ever let any cross-pollution towards me
Thus I will be ratifying myself, while
I claim to be natural and constant, inflexible as the northern star.
Yaw! I’m the star of my self and my nation
I’m indigenous then I a national flower

Really, really I will never give praise by demeaning my self
Let me alone Rosé
I will be rather be a Hermit

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
