    Potential is a burden
    uneasily carried until it is fulfilled.
    As I have been aware of my own
    ability to think and reason,
    I have been aware of my potential.

    Whether or not the potential
    actually exists does not matter.
    The fact that there is a possibility that it exists
    leads me to search for a way to fulfill my potential.

    Along the way, there are many roads
    but, not all reach potential’s destination.
    Still, I have traveled those roads willingly
    and am the better for it for now I stand at the threshold
    of an opportunity to fulfill my potential.

    It is my goal to go beyond the traditional boundaries
    of established criteria to investigate the linkages
    between social phenomena and behavior
    by melding creativity with critical thinking
    and moving the theoretical into the realm of practicality.
    This is my potential, if, I have the strength to lift it.

    a good sista friend of mine

    was speaking on this same theme. I love the way you captured what is real for many of us who are cognizant of our chosen path, and have our "bearings"... much, much depth and personal meaning in this right here...

    Still, I have traveled those roads willingly
    and am the better for it for now I stand at the threshold
    of an opportunity to fulfill my potential


    You are my true guru brotha
