If I Were A Thing

To what shall I

Compare my life

What object

Could it be

A bird perhaps

But no

For it's too close

To all it sees

A flower maybe

With its innocence

Its blooming

In the spring

But no

I could never be

So beautiful

And confident a thing

I am the moon

Forever I float

Across the midnight

Sky

Following

My companions on earth

To them

I'll never lie

From their position

They can't see

Upon my surface

These ugly scars

The only one

Who could get close

Is one

Ever bright star

Earth knows him

As the sun

But I see

Something else

And I hope

That I can save him

For I cannot save

myself
