To the moon and back

When I feel alone, I look at the moon. I know that thousands of people the world over are looking at the same moon. They might not have the same feelings that I do, but they are feeling and hurting and the glow of the moon settles their soul.. if only for a moment. In that moment, we’re one person.

Whenever I feel alone, I look at the moon. I imagine myself years from now, looking at the moon and thinking, how far have I come? Will this matter five years from now? Maybe. Maybe not.

Whenever I feel alone, I look at the moon. It brings enough empathy that I can rest if only for a moment. In that moment, we’re still one person.

Whenever I feel alone, I look for the moon. Sometimes it’s not there, it’s hidden behind the clouds and I need to find myself for myself. I’ll always keep searching, for in that moment, I’m a whole person.

To the moon and back,

I hope I can always look up and feel it; that infinite wonder, that peace, that hope. I hope I’m never too jaded to believe in the bigger picture, the big dipper, orion’s belt.
I hope I can always look up and feel closer to something better, something whole and pure and ready. Ready and waiting for me to realize it.
These distant diamonds are far more precious than any fools paradise below. I’m looking for you when I’m looking up, but I just find me. That will always be enough.
