The Waning Moon

Even the moon needs a day off,
Away from the stars,
To start afresh, 
To start anew.
So what are we, darling, 
Always trying to be seen,
Putting our masks on,
Being our best selves?
Let’s wane a little,
Take a tiny break,
Away from everything,
That demands our presence.
Where we love,
No one, but ourselves,
‘Cause believe it or not,
We too need time to reset.

    Very apt.. .
    We all need some time alone with ourselves, not because we don’t want to be with others but because we want some time with our own selves.
    Poignant thought🤗
