Caring for daisies

I want to write about the children
but all I see are daisies
weaned between the concrete cracks
of beer gardens and trodden on
to make them more resilient
on school paths
left to fend for themselves
to foster independence
in a world which states that
the high barbed wire fence
is for the child to feel secure
and physical restraint is an embrace.
