The Moon in Me- An Epigram

Ah, Cruel Chance, know that if you were to pick "today" at random,

I would go down smiling bright and treading light and hearty-a-pace!

If, knowing that, "today" you do chose...Alas...Why I'll never fathom!

Just take me quick, before the moon in me decides to show its other face.

I can't begin to tell you how much I love it when the reader and kind encouraging reviewer's interpretation gives so much depth in a piece that merely tip-toes on the rim of a notion! Thank you dear Jason! 🎈

What a beautifully defiant statement of the determination to live life to the full regardless of the fate that hangs over us all, while at the same time acknowledging that, that very courage is a choice. I love the symbolism of the moon for this, because with its very slow rotation meaning that we only ever see the same side of it, it's almost like it very carefully chooses to only show us the bright side that we're used to and to keep it's darker side to itself, metaphorically speaking. Brilliant Mae.
