The phrase “The Sky is the Limit” never clicked with me
How can it be encouraging when it warns you that there is a limit?
People explain it away, claiming there is no actual “sky”
Trying to find an excuse to shove in a metaphor
To sound prettier with their words
If you think about it
What are the people really saying?
Are they saying the sky isn’t really there?
That objects we cannot see or touch do not exist?
If they do not exist, they cannot form our obstacles?
But, love isn’t really there either
You can’t touch love
You can’t see love, just like the sky
Yet love is one of the causes of our obstacles.
We believe the sky is there
And see it as a border around the Earth
Just like we believe in love
And acknowledge love’s obstacles
So if we go around saying there is no sky
How is that any different than saying there is no love?
The phrase “The sky is the limit” really does have a limit
Because there is a sky
Just like there is love
So, just like you believe in the endless sky
Just like you believe in everlasting love
You need no encouraging quote to tell you
Just believe in yourself
