Daisy Life

Those who feel isolated and rejected,
Like a daisy labelled as 'weed'.
Remember your petals shine bright.
Your life ready to succeed.

Growing through cracks
in the most unlikely place.
Persistent and determined
a tough road you may face.

You will be cut down and pushed back,
but don't listen to others you are yourself.
Always be who you are!
Don't be the book left on the bookshelf.

Who says you can't reach the stars
or take hold of your own fate.
Don't let others control you.
Do not rush you can wait.

You are precious some thing that holds hope,
where small girls make jewellery of white.
Chains, rings and more hoping to be royal.
Let your dreams take flight.

You are not the unwanted flower,
existing in this cruel world.
Don't just grow through the cracks.
Let your petals unfurl.
