Not until we look deeply in the mirror, do we find clarity and unity with all of mankind.
Under the Moon

The beauty of the moon that is a million miles away

Hovering overhead in the sky so far above

Present for us to see

and others to see as well

Intimately feeling our deepest painful thoughts that dwell

It is under this moon that we search for understanding

To life’s greatest confusions and human lack of love withstanding

So many people

So many stories

So much confusion

Hiding true glory

Under this moon we all abide

So separated by vast differences

But also connected by one common thread

The need for Love

The longing for purpose

Although individual and alone we stand

Our hearts hold secrets in common

For in stillness and silence, we reflect and hope

For resolution connection and belonging

Our hearts so open exposed and vulnerable

As the dawn arises, another busy day begins

The longings get hidden, pushed back into the dirt

once again postponing a

a unified calling for Peace on Earth

With Respect, Hope, Joy and Love, Carmela
