The Moon

Represents my heart

To those unknown

I look nice

On the outside

But, look closer,

I am flawed

I am ugly

I have been hit

Injured, and scarred


It matters not

I am still loved

By those who care


Who are truly


About me

When I play

With my rabbits

They join me

They help me

Take one small step

So that I will

Take one giant leap
