Unified Separation

by Pedro Espinosa, age 12
Unified Separation Pedro is a very creative and intuitive writer. He likes to come up with deep metaphors to express indispensable social issues in American society.

“Once there was a sun and moon / The sun circled the moon, like a dog racing to catch its tale / They were Unified / Stronger together / The light and the moon / The same / But separate”

                           

Once there was a sun and moon

The sun circled the moon, like a dog racing to catch its tale

They were Unified

Stronger together

The light and the moon

The same

But separate

The light and dark’s appearance

The sun’s shining face blared down on the moon’s darkness

The shining sun tried to overshadow the moon, they didn’t know the moon was a star

But the moon struggled to shine, as it reflected light off the sun,

As the moon attempted to appear in the same shimmering sky

 

The sun will outshine the moon, but there are still thousands of moons.

Years Later

The sun

Shines over all the land

With little reminiscence of black moons.
