Look Up and Give Up

Written by: Kara McLain

Don’t you just hate it,
Despise it
When you feel it
Bubbling up inside?

The fear, 
The anticipation
Of not knowing
When to start,
When to stop.

When to look around 
And make sure that life 
Is still going,
That the trees are still growing.

When to turn your face up to the sky
And just let it all go.
