The Dark Side of the Moon

I looked at the moon and asked, “Why do you show your dark side? Why not show your bright side all the time?”

“You know I always have a bright side,” it replied, “even when you don’t see it.”

Then it added, “You have a dark side, too.”

I stood there and wondered, how can it see my dark side?

As if reading my mind it said, “When you look at the dark side of others, you are actually showing yours.”

I stopped the conversation and walked away.

From somewhere I heard a song floating in the evening air.

And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and down
And in the end it’s only round and round
– Pink Floyd, “Us and Them”
