Don’t limit me.
You set your parameters, which you believe to be the truth.
You tell me I can’t be this without being that.
You insist that one thing must follow another.
You hold me with expectation and manipulate with guilt.
You place your past in my future and tell me how it’s gonna go.
What you don’t know is who I am.
I contain the entire universe.
I live in choice.
I decide who I am and what my truth is.
Your past and your fear have no place in my future.
Your limitations and expectations belong to you, not to me.
Don’t limit me.
I can be anything.
I already contain everything.
