High hopes
Placed on delicate shoulders
Fidgety and fragile,
Though firm at first glance.

Their air of confidence,
Dazzling and bright.
Her uncertainty,
A mere shadow.

Entrusted upon a doubtful girl.
A slight nod of agreement,
A tinge of anxiousness.

They fail to see
The tremble in her smile,
The moment of hesitation,
The glimpse of worry.

Disappoint she must not
Though they entrap her.
She will carry on
With a deceitful smile.
