i shot the moon with my eyes
i fired bullets and hit it twice
first, it landed on the crust but missed
Lunar Maria and Lunar Terrae
it bore a deep hole into the mantle
reached the core, outer and inner
the hardest part the inner core
like your heart i can’t ignore

the second bullet passed thru your mind
it made some convincing
to be noticed not playing blind
thanks god your outer core have melted
that left the inner core be thawed
softened, moved and beat
towards this heart of mine
may you shine bright all thru the night…

Success…

i gathered skills
to color my skin
i exerted efforts
to know where to begin

i bathed in the sun
to bake some dirt
i froze in the dawn
to immerse into the hurt

tears and sweat have mixed
as they spilled out from skin
energy and time
ran along my will

thoughts of survival
came spinning on the wheel
busy fingers on the weave
molding a body of steel

“i can do it”
i kept reminding me
searching for the brightest star
the one that’s holding the key

i have reached the core
the heart of the night
the success i was aiming for
was won ’cause i gave the battle a fight…
