There’s a girl who sits by the light of the moon
knowing her life might be over soon.
A candle to her left, the world to her right
she lets herself imagine the ambiguity of “might.”
Her uncertain future stretches on as dense as a forest
as she comes to terms with the epiphany that tomorrow isn’t promised.
Life is complex with its twists and its turns
providing new opportunities for her to grow and learn.
Yet as another day closes and she throws it to the fire
she strives onwards for profundity and purpose to inspire.
For the enigma that is death she craves something to help her cope
and in the matched immensity of the moon she finally finds her hope.
