Teach Me O Moon


Teach me O moon to be just like you
Teach me O moon to glow brightly as you do
To glow so strongly more than any shiny star
Teach me O moon to be so beautiful as you are
To be an example of the ultimate talking beauty
Teach me O moon to perform well my duty
As thou always do when you show up every night
And spread to the whole dark world thy shy light
Teach me O moon to always rise whenever I fall
And to break with the hammer of determination that wall
The wall of hardships, sorrows, despair and darkness
The wall of ignorance, pessimism, weakness and sadness
Teach me O moon to always return for the beloved ones
And to be like a tender mother to her sons
Teach me O moon to soar up in the vast sky
So that people shall raise their heads to see me flying high
Teach me O moon to be always so peaceful and calm
And teach me O moon to be always better than I am

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Wait for the night to come, go to a sea or just go to the top of a building or even go to your balcony, raise your head and look at the high amazing glowing moon. Stare at for half an hour and you'll discover how wonderful it is.

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
