Crown of Daisies

By: Lauren Hassan

I am but a girl with scars,
Not those that are seen,
The kind buried beneath it all,
I am but a girl with a dream,
Like any other you will see,
I am unique,
But still like any other,
I’ve been thrown,
And hit,
And threatened,
And smacked,
So I have grieved,
And cried myself to sleep,
I am like a crown of daisies,
Near the sky,
And smelling sweet,
But if you tug my petals,
I will fall to pieces.
