How Does One Give Up?

How does one give up?
I know not how to give up,
A frustration when uncertainty bombards me.

How does one ignore the possibility and discovery?
I cannot ignore the excitement that opportunity stirs in me.
My trust in Life opens me to the gifts offered in any situation.

How does one feel safe believing the worst?
I feel inadequate imagining the worst,
Hope ignites me when I admit that I don't know.

In moments of great change, I am propelled into the history of my existence and uncertainty overwhelms me. Memories emerge and the temptation to quit erupts when facing the unknown is necessary. The uncertainty that is and has been my life draws me to question why I keep going but I can never find the heart to quit, lose hope or stop trusting Life. I feel pain not fully understanding myself yet I'm also curious to get to know what's coming.
