I am the quantity

And also the quality


I am the tangible substance

And an abstract competence


I can measure my seen magnitude

And add to it my unseen aptitude


The visible me is the same in all

And so is the original potential


And when I tap this source

It is converted to force


It's the infinite hidden fuel I ignite

As I explore with my body finite


The utilized resource is my quality

And the untapped sediment is ability


My extraction of this power

Is the evolution called character


My use of power makes a difference

Which divides me from the populace


It creates an example of possibility

That makes others see attainability


To express the ability…of the divine

And reveal the quality…as though mine
