Origami Daisy

I made it during recess

I was lonely

In a sea of children

Playing basketball

Tag, hopscotch,

While I made

A tiny silver origami flower.

I dug a hole for it

So it would belong.

A silver flower camouflaged

In a field of live daisies.

 —

Have you ever felt that you did not belong? Well, I have.
