Our walls tremble 
with every wind
and each of the world's 
whispers remind 
of our impermanence 
yet my optimism,
it never fades

each of us, every one
are traveling this upwards trajectory

that has the very same destination

I don't love you 
in spite of your imperfections 
but because of them

each of them, every one
is like a diamond's facet
a certain uniqueness

that leaves

its fingerprint 
on the Universe.
