a city on the moon

A Poem By: Ishrat Chahal


The truth is that

there is no universal truth

We wander

and reach and pull

Trying to have it all

Live up to the bar

even though

we come from two different worlds

I from a city on the moon

You from the throes of intergalactic space;

two worlds that will never meet.

And yet we ebb and we flow

around each other,

pushing

on tippy toes —

trying to measure ourselves

as more

important

more beautiful

most worthy;

any kind of recognition —

and that, I suppose, will be the only

thing that our worlds will ever have in common
