Limitless


I am indefinable.
I am a soul, not a color,
Not a number or a shape,
And more than a simple name.
The mirror tells me nothing
And neither does the scale.
Immune to words of venom.
You can't drain me in your pain.
If I hate you,
I become you.
If I hate myself,
I become worse.
I'm not flawless;
I am beautiful.
Although lost,
You are beautiful.
We are not bound or chained by labels.
We create our own limit
But only if we choose to.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
