The Moon is not as you Think [Archives:2008/1163/Community]

The moon is not as you think,

So nice and bright

And lighting up the night.

The moon is between

The earth and sky.

It is lonely and

Makes people cry!

The moon is not as you think!

The moon is not so beautiful,

But ugly,

With many holes in it

And the sun makes it silvery!

The moon is so dark;

It can't appear full every day,

Although it is a creature

That thanks Allah and prays!

I can't stay here watching

The lonely moon.

Oh, how my heart resembles

This lonely moon!

I thought many times

How the moon would please

My sad eyes.

My heart is not so sweet,

But ugly, full of blood

And made of a piece of meat!

What makes such a shape?

Love and hate,

Or cry when we separate?

And what makes birds fly

And people live and die?

I can't bear watching

The lonely moon,

When it suddenly sinks into

The bosom of the sky!
