Daisy Chain

"Daisies of the world unite -- all you have to loose is your chains." ~Unknown

I love daisies. Every color, every size.

My favorite ones are the Gerbera daisies, rich-colored and elegant.

There's something so innocent, so bold, so breathtaking about these flowers. These flowers whisper "love" in the darkness of my life; they have always meant something rich, deep inside my soul.

They are the strongest of the daisies, but yet, they are just as fragile as any other of their field-sisters.

Sometimes, I feel like a daisy. Beautifully innocent, but still echoing with whispers of a hidden strength. There are times when I feel like I'm going to break, like my petals are going to fall off and I'm going to wilt into nothing.

And then, He whispers in my ear.

"You're Mine. Even in the worst times of your life, when you feel like you've got nothing left, I will always be there. And you're Mine; one day, you'll live with Me forever. Hold on..."

And so I do.

Even when it seems impossible, when my heart is breaking for someone I love, or when my own life seems to be imploding from the inside out...

...I hold on.

So. All of you daisies -- beautiful, strong people who feel like you're barely holding on sometimes...

...stand up.

...break your chain.


Because you're loved.

"Promise me you'll always remember: you're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." ~Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne

I look at you and see all the ways a soul can bruise, and I wish I could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns along your spine so you know there's nothing but light when I see you. :: Shinji Moon
