What will the
News be when it
Comes? Good news or bad?
Stand up, sit down
Just cannot be still!
Smile or weep
What will we do
When we get the news?

I enjoyed the structure of your poem and felt you successfully built the tension as the poem unfolded. Structure and patterns are really useful when we work with young poets, so you have added to my list of possibilities with this. Thank for sharing this revelatory poem.
Here is a link to some poems I wrote a while back, trying to explain some different poetry
You captured the feeling when we wait and wonder. I feel your impatience with the words, “Just cannot be still.” Hoping for the best and thinking about all the situations where this poem would fit.
