A petal in the rose garden
A gunshot in Iraq
A drop of water in a massive wave
A dream in Sleeping Beauty's endless night.

An orchid in a concrete crack
A vibrant shooting star in an inky, cloud filled night
The kiss to wake Snow White
A smile in a world of anger

Sunlight in darkness
Love amongst apathy
Tears aside peace
Death within life

You ask me;
"Which am I, and what are you?"

Are we not both?

The sweet note from a piano nestled within the symphony 
One blink of an eye in a lifetime 
A strand of cotton in a blanket
But also
The first drop of rain in a drought
The innocence in a child's eyes
A compliment given instead of an insult thrown?

One without the other is not possible. 

To force fame upon yourself is invisibility. 


We must be the moon

As well as the sun.
