Forget the grudges, the drama, and all nonsense. 
The night has just been born so why ruin it with foolishness. 
We don't need the so called "glitz and glamor" of whatever the world is advertising. 
All we need are the simple things like Love and each other. 
Hatred, Gone. Envy, Demolished. Prejudiced, Vanquished. Greed, Disappeared. 
A lesson both young and old can learn. 
The moon doesn't discriminate upon race, religion, gender, or age. 
It simply does its task of rising and descending sharing it's brightness with everyone to light the path so we can see. 
If only it could enlighten some of the concepts of the "darkness"

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow it's mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

This one is quite lovely. I like the line "The night has just been born." Nice and unique sentence! Nice closing line also. This flows well, great job :)

"... How dreary to be somebody-- How public like a frog;
To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"
