I can see a storm bellowing quietly behind those intense eyes,
The smirk with many meaning and different shades of forbidden lies,
The restless soul trying hard to anchor in past yore,
Countless thoughts keeping her awake behind that trap door.

Rising Above All Odds

Battling the darkness,
fighting the malign,
jostling adversity,
dodging cosmic signs.

Like a gladiator’s grit,
the moon repels and morphs.

Every shape being unique,
every shine to behold.

Not very different from you,
for your best comes to display when the stakes are against you.
