Try your hardest in everything you do even if nobody is watching.

The blue fabric of your dress flaps in the breeze

As you run, playing make-believe.

Your smile couldn't be any bigger than on those days that you were friends with the world.


The blue fabric of your dress is calm

But this time you are not make-believing for fun

Your smile seems so real on these days that it covers up


The blue fabric is flapping once again

As I now look up at you

The rope pull tight against your neck, holding you up.


What happened to make-believe and the smile?
