The Moon said to the Stars,
do not look at my dark side for it is unseen by me,
and unworthy of Love.
And the stars said, I see your darkness and light
and love your contrasting nature.
Would it be love if I only loved the half that reflected my shining?
At a distance you only see my light.
Come closer and know that I am You.
