Ever wondered what’s on the side of the moon we don’t see? 14 year old Prisha Bhatt, a Bookosmian from Kolkata takes a philosophical take on it with this poem and leaves us with a note of hope.
Congrats to Word Munchers for nurturing her creativity. She goes to Sri Sri Academy, Kolkata.
Astronomy – The Moon’s Dark Phase | Bookosmia
The face we have never seen
The side for showing, she is not very keen
Darker than the black
The part someday that used to shine
Hoping to fall in love one more time
The light that shines within
From the dark she shall win
Hoping the love isn’t gone
Maybe someone will build her back to one
The happier side she shows to everyone
Even from the broken pieces we never learn
Someday she’ll let her guard down
And then maybe even stick around
Helping others through their grievances
She let go of her own preferences
The soul that was lost in a small box
Wanting to find the key to the rusty locks
The old her that smiled at the world
And those sights that were now blurred
When she goes to bed tonight
She won’t cry like every other night
She will remember what life feels like
Someone to stick by her side
That day her fate won’t be doomed
And we’ll see the other side of the moon.
