Stand By--For the Rest of Your Life!

A Poem By Sarah Liz // 1/19/2016

I’m standing on the edge of a breathtaking drop
Look out across that horizon!
My heart feels so terribly small
The dome of the sky so tall

The road behind that snakes behind me
Well known and trod, but short
Plain and simple, loved and known
My childhood’s in the past.

But don’t look behind
Look out before!
Don’t gaze backward
All eyes ahead!

We’re standing on the verge!
Our journeys—they all lie before!

We’re standing on the verge!
Look out at the rest of our lives!

We’re standing on the verge!
It’s our time—our time to live!

Can’t you feel the trembling heartbeat?
Can’t you feel the rush?
The excitement—flooding, crashing, surging
Through your youthful soul?

The year two thousand sixteen
Yes, it’s time! The time is ours!
Seize the moment! We’re on the verge
Stand by—for the rest of YOUR life!
