"What you make of today comes with you for the rest of your life"

Sometimes I want to sit on the moon
watching the world dance on its path.
At night I'm watching millions of people,
some with passionate intentions of kissing under my light.

Some nights I feel alone and half wanted.
It gives time to think of half-intentions.
Other nights I feel fully loved under my light.
Yet still, I have a dark path ahead of me.
Sometimes I wonder why I get so cold.
But I always shine no matter how dark I've been.

I watch the world of people in disappointment,
people with the obliterated senses from life and worry.
I watch, not knowing where their minds lead.
I only know where they might lead and might not.

I see myself now with many changes,
sometimes dark, sometimes light.
I am always hot and always cold.
I am never alone.

I dance the path of eternity,
not knowing where it might lead.
So, to say what I am,

I'm not that far from human.

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece because I feel that I am very different from my surroundings. I observe the world a lot and in this poem I wonder what it would be like to sit on the moon and watch the world "dance on its path."

This is one of your best, I think. :)

Nice job! :)

This poem reminds me of one written by TheSilentRaven. 

Interestingly, last night I saw one of the prettiest moons I've ever seen, over the skyline of Boston.
