Total amount:

Looking Up affirms that life is difficult but it is also precious, that there is hope for a better tomorrow. It is a collection of poems that are unquestionably authentic, personal, and human. Giving voice to the whirlwind that is life, — the trials, victories, gains, and losses — it dares to go beyond and highlights the growth that can come from embracing it all.

Let this be but a humble reminder that there is so much good in allowing every experience to rest on the palm of our hands, in cherishing them and recognizing that they have a purpose in our lives. May we learn from these growing pains and heartaches, giving them space to better ourselves and the people around us.

Melanie Egunza has lived in the suburbs of Seattle, Washington for the majority of her life. She began writing when she was around 13 years old and is currently working towards her Bachelor’s degree in English. Looking Up with Open Arms is an accumulation of the highs, lows, growing up, and worldview development that’s brought her up to be the person she is today.

A young woman navigating how to live out her Catholic faith and the challenges of life has never been easy, but with poetry, she finds the journey is undeniably beautiful. One day, she hopes to share her love for self expression through words with her future students.
