The Sun And The Moon

Who broke you

and left you

in such a way,

that the sun never rises

and the moon always stays?

Who stole your smile

and left you so sad?

Who took your voice

and muted it all,

that the only thing left

has become

half-muttered sounds?

But I can still see you

and see through your shell.

Even the pieces

you hide from yourself.

I see you smiling

and running a muck.

I see you open

and fearless as f**k.

You are not

what they said

or who they

made you out to be.

You are beautiful

and stronger

then some may see.

But I can still SEE you

and I know your strength.

I’ve seen your highs

and all of your lows.

I’ve watched you

push through

and face it head on

while others have

cowered and

run from themselves.

You see the moon

and it’s beauty and grace

but I see the sun

and it’s billowing strength.

I see you stronger

then you’ll ever see.

Please just

believe me

as I’ve been

where you’ll be.

The sun never shines

without the moon.

You’ll shine again

just keep pushing through.
