Looking Up?

Humans like to look down.

Down they see their feet

and where they can tread.

Down shows the potential dangers

that may await us around the bend.

Down shows us all those

who are still beneath us.

Down is in the past

and yet we can not lift our heads

and look up

for

Up means the future

and futures are always uncertain.
