Look Up

In the moment whenYou feel alone,

Look up.

Look out.

Crack open the mask of your fear and doubt and 

Look up.

Use the claws fear has given you

To scratch out your name

On the inside of your soul

Where the silence drops,

Dripping

Like the walls of a cave. 

In the moment

You will not feel strong

So look up.

Look to the things that are stronger than you–

The sky

The trees

The mountains

The clouds. 

The things that have always been.

In the moment when

You feel alone

Look at yourself looking at the sky

And recognize

The part of you that belongs

The part that sings

The part that flies.
