The Moon Smiled Back

February 22, 2019

The gentle breeze from outside brings with it some dust through the window as I look upon the world I am surrounded by. The neighborhood is awake and windows all around are lit up as I hear the prayers from the mosque, the worship from the church and the music from the clubs while everyone awaits the turn of the new year holding on tightly to the hope that this year will be different, it will be 'ours.' I hope this year is nice to me, I look up to the sky and see the moon shining brightly, its light spilling beautifully into my room and at that moment, as I stare at the moon and it stares back, I feel an overwhelming sense of hope that this year will in fact be mine- because the moon smiled back tonight.
