a square building
i climb,
one stairway at a time,

at each floor i stop,
peek out
to check the view,

at each stop
the perspective
changes,

i take my time
to assimilate
the change,

smile at how
each change
subtly changes me,

someday
for sure
i’ll reach the top,

from where
the gems
which light the skies,

will all be closer
than all the jewels
left behind on earth,

will the changes matter,
or the changed perspectives
hold,

can’t say much
on that
for now,

so i keep climbing
one stairway
at a time,

soaking in the views
each floor
differently offers.
