Home > Life, poetry > Potential.


The thing that scares me most

is my own potential.

What if I don’t let myself be great?

It’s the problem of risk verses comfort,

of loyalty verses stagnancy,

of waiting verses acting.

Don’t I make my own timing?

Or do I leave that up to someone else?

All I know if that my brain is often wrong

and my heart is often right,

and I can’t pass the test

if I never open the booklet.
