The Sun is rising
with eagerness and power
with his promises.
He has an extensive sword in his hand
and an insincere smile on his face,
entirely confident that he is going to defeat the Moon!

The Moon is anxiously
looking for his weapon, his warhead
full of disgust and hatred.
There is nothing in his mind
but revenge!

The Moon is forced to leave the Earth,
and the Sun is ecstatic at his own act!
The Moon is planning to attack soon,
he knows that in no time
he’ll be back, to fight,
that he’ll overthrow the Sun,
and the Moon will hold power over the Earth.

The Earth is tired,
the Earth is sad,
the Earth is hopeless.
The Earth is wise
the Earth knows
that the insensitive Moon and Sun are both wrong.

The Earth knows that Moon and Sun are sinful!
With no mercy, no fidelity regarding the Earth.

The Earth knows,
that their conviction is destroying her
and her lands and her birds
and her children and happiness and love.











The Earth wants to cry,
she is too tired though.
She wants to scream and bawl,
to tell the Sun:
“I need your brightness, warmth and power.
But I need the Moon besides.
I need his light in the darkness, his refuge and protection”.

The Earth wants to say:
“You fools! I need you both, equally.”
They won’t listen!
The Earth knows
the Moon and the Sun are both

from the same world:

its East, its West!
