Dividing by Zero

Stretching boundaries

I push the limits

because people say it’s impossible

Not for me

I’m a rebel

 

Confinement is a thing to be fought

vanquished

illusions of rules that don’t need

to be there

Gone

let disillusionment fall

 

The glass ceiling needs

to shatter

spiderwebbing cracks

criss-crossing crinkling

pieces falling out

 

Impossibility is infinity

a thing defined but doesn’t exist

except for when we are told

it does

 

The only impossibilities

are the ones we allow

Dividing by zero is undefined

not impossible

This poem is about: 
Our world
