Every accident or blueprint
Possesses intrinsic beauty
Like a kiss that was nestled between two needful lips
Or an extension of a palm to a roadside beggar
In every event of design or fortune
There rests beneath a mortal imprint
Sweat-sculpted, love-sketched, conscience-outreached
After all the human experience
Is what unifies a few billion hearts
Yet divides two beings
