more than enough

there is a limit in the sky –

a line i cannot cross

it is definable by its

unreachability –

its unattainability –

the insurmountable distance between

it and me


there is a spot i just cannot reach –

an itch that goes unscratched

it burns and begs

but i cannot soothe it

it eludes my reach as though it

finds me lacking


i cannot accept this


i will pass the sky’s limitations –

i will cross over the line

i will redefine its accessibility –

its achievability –

i will shorten the distance between

it and me


i will reach as far as i can

and then i will reach further –

i will learn to extend myself beyond measure –

i will soothe the burn of feasibility

and i will find myself

more than enough
