The Moon and You

Mediocrity, accepted.
Unquestioned because it’s easy,
Life lived halfway

Until one day, wrinkled,
You look at the broken shutter

Hanging from the upstairs window
Where you first prayed as a child,
When you still believed.

Doubt crept in, unexpressed,
Visible but not loud.
Disbelief hangs in your mind,

The moon in the sky.
Living a double life, but
Moon always shines,

Present when it’s new,
Present in you, reminding you –
You are two.
