Daisy Chains

The sky looked tranquil, wondrous yet intimidating like the adventures that were to await the young girl that sat amongst the floating rose petals and weeping willows in the garden of childhood innocence. Her small feet ran as green grass tangled between her toes, wearing an unharmed smile too pure for the world.

Sweet giggles echoed as she felt blades of grass tickle her bare legs as she created delicate holes and began to carefully thread each stem, tied together with tight knots. A pile of elegant white and spots of happy yellow sat beside her as she formed a string of happiness.

Her surroundings were her cocoon that protected her from the dangers that inevitably waited outside. But as the years passed by the cocoon became smaller, cracks started to form and her utopian kingdom became cramped and suffocating. Reality began puncturing holes and deflating all hope. I would do anything to go back to being that young girl, the one still safely wrapped in her cocoon.  

That young girl with glinting fire in her eyes is now seventeen, sitting in the garden of teenage angst surrounded by dying nature. Yet each daisy that connects with another represents a happy moment in her life along with her greatest achievements and memories.

And now, that same girl wears the daisy chain like a crown, as if she feels proud of the life that she's achieved. And despite her now broken smile, once she has placed the crown upon her head, her smile beams brighter than ever before and she once again is too pure for the world to ever take it away from her again.
