Don't compare yourself to others. There's no comparison between the sun and the moon, they both shine when the time is right.

I have gunpowder in my chest

Instead of a heart.

It leaves my lips in the shape of a bullet;

I open my ribcage for acceptance,

for it to leave me as nothing but a husk.

The author's comments:

This piece came when I tried to share my emotions but felt rejected. It came at a time when I was feeling really vulnerable and wanting to share that with someone.

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
--Joni Mitchell

Wow, I sometimes feel that way too. Great short poem that says everything.
