How does the crescent moon feel on a dark day
Trying to light up the world, trying to float above the vastness
Does she sometimes wait to feel full again, to feel like herself again
Not knowing that she has been complete all along?
Does she know that even on her weakest day, she means so much to the world?
How does the moon feel on the strange day
When the Scientist comes and tells her that she is 384,400 kms away from the earth
And that all the people she loves, can’t probably even come to meet her
Does she feel alone in the sky?
Not knowing that Lovers look up to her every night,
And that Poets have loved her beyond distance, have craved for just her sight.
And how will you feel when you realize
That you’ve been cheating yourself all this time
Telling yourself that you are weak, that it isn’t yet the time to shine
But maybe like the moon you are beautiful and bright
and that behind the happenings that change you every week
is a person like the moon, sometimes broken, but always complete.
