Clouds Behind the Moon

The little Martian men

Haven’t lost their way.

They’re simply on a journey

To a warmer place.


One small step for me

A giant leap for you.

This must be our undoing

Or a path to something new.


The clouds behind the moon

They hide from you and me.

They float along in silence

With tears to be set free.


So I tried this little something

I pictured my demise.

My heart then grew more humble

As I felt through different eyes.
