Celestial Scene

The moon, hidden in one corner,
Pining in pain beneath the cloud,
Majestic sun, out to conquer.

Seeing no sign of hope and grace,
Hurt and shattered; crying loud,
The moon, hidden in one corner.

Fiery words like flames that blaze
Left the innocent moon too cowed.
Majestic sun, out to conquer.

Surface burnt by the sun’s hot rays,
Mightily spilt with light that shroud,
The moon, hidden in one corner.

Words that scorched now turned into praise
Songs of compassion played aloud,
Majestic sun, out to conquer.

Deeply injured and now in daze,
No strength to reach out and stand proud,
The moon, hidden in one corner.
Majestic sun, out to conquer.
