Get Up

It’s always there
That fear of leaving this world
Only to be forgotten by others
You can’t help but worry
Your time could be up at anytime
Maybe in your sleep, maybe tomorrow
A month, a year, ten years
And you haven’t left your mark to show you were here
Get up
Do something, anything
Whether it be writing
Creating a piece of art
Learning to play an instrument
Singing at karaoke or in a choir
Learning to dance
Anything that you’ve wanted to do
But were too afraid to, just do it
Sure you’ll struggle at first but don’t stop
But please, please don’t continue sitting there
And not do anything with this life of yours
Because doing something is better than doing nothing
Go now
Do what it is you want to do
Without looking back
And maybe, just maybe
You’ll leave your mark on this world
