‘Look Up’ by Gary Turk is going viral at the moment. I love it. I’m pleased though that my little poem was published in One Woman’s Verses vs Cancer before the video was released. Otherwise I just might have had an accusation of plagiarism to address…
Keep Looking Up
It’s hard to keep ahead if you keep looking to the ground
All you’ll see is tarmac while your wheels are spinning round
Lift your head and raise your eyes above your handlebars
See how bright the sun is or the beauty in the stars.
Even in your darkest days while cycling through the rain
Looking up might see you through your treatment or your pain
Share the ride with people who will let you lead the way
And then you’ll find a clearer path to help you through each day.
