Inspired to eigth grade English, the moon, and pointless assignments.


Let them be as hot as the sun
always surrounded and followed,
but never at peace or alone,

I'd rather be the moon,
cool and distant,
not following the crowd,
standing alone

To have shade and shadow,
a dark beauty
illuminated in the night

To be mysterious,
watched from afar
looked at, but never touched

I'd rather be distant,
cool and calm
watching everything
without getting invovled

I'd rather be the moon
than the sun with
burning flame

I'd rather be the moon
