vertical line one day, when i was going about my day, thinking as one does, a word entered my thoughts and resonated at a level it had never before, the word so simple and commonly spoken, but only the word is heard, a word that speaks of no "this or that", "right or wrong" a word that goes beyond time, space, or any perception of it, yet gives power to every individual at the same time, a word that encompasses all the past, present and future, that word is "universe".

uni - verse
one - song
