The Stars and The Moon
Is it belief? Is it faith?
That fills you up with so much hate
Is it culture? Or tradition?
To force your ideals until submission
Same people, different religions
Same love, different orientations
Yet there’s hate in close proximity
Even though we share the same morality
This perception of right and wrong
Does that dictate your humanity?
You hand pick who belongs
And leave no room for diversity
Why is it that you leave no space
For people that look just like you?
Don’t we all live in the same place
With the same future to look forward to
What else do you want me to ask?
What else do you want me to explain?
For you to change the way you love
For you to let them feel safe
I understand this is what you were taught
How your mind works while your heart stays numb
But I hope you can understand
That this world does not revolve around one
Broken bones don’t satisfy hunger
Just as thirst for blood sustains
But comprehension might help nurture
The love you hold deep within
So why is it that you leave no space
For people with similar virtues
Because we all look at the sky the same way
Faintly smiling at the stars and the moon
