Potential is a marvellous thing

Potentially I have songs to sing

Or words of wondrous rhyme to write 

Emerge the victor from each fight 

Hop on a trip to outer space 

Embarrass our entire race 

Invent a cancer curing pill

Quench man's blood thirsty need to kill 

Revitalise old mother earth 

Before she draws her final breath 

Take on the warlords endless hate 

Get all the way to heaven's gate 

Pour love into forgotten souls 

Submerged in deeply darkened holes 

So as I ponder what to do

Know you have this potential too

        So many sit waiting for their potential to be discovered

        Potential to reach ones goals is all the importance of ones soul. ❤️

          Thank you Teddy
          Last time I saw you
          You were into a Reeves and copper spaghetti sarnie
          You finished it?
          Lovely poetic response
