Centimeters of light


at the center of the earth

the imprint of different worlds.

Inside a trip

of centuries

nothing breaks.

Advances the wild scream

of freedom.

It knows of sea and fire

speaks the language of the wind

He doesn’ t know end

smells of sublime.

Elements pulsate

in depth

closed in a fertile dream.

I am behind the hour,

I make up my face with the reason

I comfort myself by religion

I attend reality

in front of the mirror.

Thousand souls

sweat the identity,

only one has my name

and filter walls

drawing my being.
