Just Be

Just Be.

No tougher, more difficult words have been uttered by a friend.

Just be.
When my heart is racing and my world is changing.
When my being, my spirit is on fire. 
How ?
How can I just be?

I feel like running, jumping, screaming.
Scared right out of my mind.
What will tomorrow bring?

How do I race from now to tomorrow?
How do I stop the feelings of rejection?
The feelings of failure?

Yet I know in my heart it is true.
I must accept and embrace what has happened and just be.
