Hot Cocoa and Daisy Petals 

by Britt Cole


I'm sad, I tell him.
He hands me a mug.

I'm really upset, I go on.
He fills it with hot cocoa.

They called me names again, I cry.
He hands me a jar of daisy petals.

What good are these, I whisper. 

Hot cocoa makes everything better, he explains.

And the daisy petals are beautiful even after being picked on.
