A spec in the Universe

The moon
Why does it have no name?  No Roman or Greek deity with which to share its title

Does it feel alone?
Alone like I do when I stare up at its softness, its delicate light

I feel a sense of vastness when I pause to gaze at its phase
So close, yet so far

There is so much more out there
Only the moon, and the gentle flickering of the stars to remind us

Our daily tasks, Earthly woes and elations
There is so much on Earth, on such a small planet in the Milky Way

It’s easy to get lost, caught up in human endeavours
But there is so much more

Gases burning, spending their entire lives in a state of fusion
Lighting up their corner of the galaxy

Nebulae, black holes, planets spinning around their own solar mother
There is so much more

So when you look at the moon
Remember, you are not alone

All humans look up at that same moon
Upon its glowing face

Different races, different genders, different lives
Bound together by the shimmering light

As you go about your day, whether it be good or bad, remember:
There is so much more
And you are not alone.
