Whatever you give me, I will fill

Whatever you give me, I will fill:
if you give me a corner of your house, I will fill it –
but do not think I only fit in a corner of your house!
If you give me an ocean basin, I will fill it –
but do not think I am the size of an ocean!
If you give me a religion, I will fill it –
but do not think I only exist within the realms of a religion!
If you give me the cosmos, I will fill it –
but do not think I am limited to the cosmos!
If you give me all things unseen and unknowable, I will fill it –
but do not think that I am limited by the unseen and unknowable!
Just because these are your limitations
does not mean they are mine
