"Don't think or judge. Just listen."

When I see the moon; I think of the millions of people looking up at it..

I stop and think that maybe your looking up at it just like me.

I see it as a way that just for one moment we are one.

For one moment we are connected.

For one moment I am strong.

But then again,

I see everything in a different way.

These eyes that are watching me are like a child's.

A child who hasn't yet learned that it is rude to stare at someone; tears streaming.

But that's just what everyone wants.

They sneak side glances at you.

Everyone is just waiting for me to slip up; to make a mistake.

And that's fine with me.

Because I have come to terms with this world.

And all I can hope to accomplish on this Earth is to try and love.

Even though that can be very hard.

...Maybe I see everything in a different way.

Sometimes I wonder if certain things hadn't happened to me..

Would I be different?

What if...

What I hadn't been there that night?

What if they hadn't hurt me?

What if I still had some innocence..

While being directed for a theater production,

A girl had to cuddle and flirt with someone,

She was uncomfortable.

The director said,

"..It's OK. I love that your uncomfortable. That shows such beautiful innocence."

She blushed and looked away shyly; a bit embarrassed.

I sat and pondered this..

What would I have done?

I was jealous of that girl in that moment..

I would have know what to do.


Such beautiful, amazing, pure, sweet...


People can see the same situation yet,

...See everything in a different way.
