"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

One was the moon

She saw the world around her

In only shades of black.

She tried her very hardest 

To light up the world

In her own unique beauty.

Trying to give the world 




All in the endless void of night.

Her goal was to make people smile

And she did

Yet she was lonely and kept a brave face

We all watched her fade in and out

Without a care

One was the stars

She traveled the world

She saw the sights

She lit up the night sky

Wherever the moon could not reach.

And when all were asleep

She comforted the moon

And beckoned the sun.

She shined in many ways

Her intellect and creativity

She shimmered with wisdom

And saved us from dark

The way she could reach everyone around her

The way she isn’t always there

One was the sun

She was able to bring light all day

All alone she managed

To provide warmth for all around her

Often taken for granted, she did the kind thing

Giving love to those who didn’t deserve it

Working day after day

To make people understand 

That there



To give more than to receive

To wish for a break from the struggle

Of loving all.







The moon was alone.

The stars gave her hope

The stars were away

The sun gave her light

The sun was exhausted

The moon gave her rest

For they each light up the world

With each other.
