Don’t be a monster, you’re not a monster

Please don’t be a monster
Don’t let it devour you
It hurts to hurt but
Don’t let it seethe you
Remember when you were a little girl
And you would try to see it through

Don’t be a monster
Just let these feelings pass
Think of all the soft petals
Brushing across your rosey cheeks

Its okay, you are still you
They are just old
And hurting to make it through
Be nice to them, and work for them

They raised you with love and honey
And warm milk and enough money
For you to grow and smile

So remember those smiles
Remember their smiles

You are not a monster
So don’t be a monster
Don’t let their harsh words devour you
They still love you
And always will love you

Your mouth must hold the thorny roses
For their empty vases
Because they poured all their water
Into your empty glass
So you can be full and
Face the world of faces
And be quenched to face its heat
So don’t ever slip and beat
And make yourself feel weak

Serve them well with your full glass
And hold their thorny roses
So you all can smell its soft petals

And plant their last smile
For their short while left.

Our beloved Sun and Moon

Not always is the sun shining bright

in its perfect light

nor is the moon always present

to shimmer through your dark moments

But you have to work your way past that and create your own light

become a star who has its own sight

find its path to share its rays

until you become the new sun of your days

a learned sun who knows not to sink low

and desperately set on shallow waves

 

or  become a learned moon

who orbits in a balanced pace

remains bold amongst the thicket of dark clouds

and like the sun, caressing all within its space
