    baby the potential in you is remarkable
    i just dont know why you won't let it shine through
    sometimes i even wonder if you
    knew that the potential of you is incrediable
    but it is covered up by layers of
    bling-bling, with a thick layer of bitterness mixed in with immaturity

    baby the potential in you is
    what i see
    and the what if's and what could be's is what keeps
    me moving.......knowing..... longing for you

    because see baby your potential will set you free
    from all the games and chickens that your used to
    and allow you to love someone like me

    cause see baby with the potential i see in you
    that is what let's me know that
    there is some potential to the thought of "me and you"
    and it is that of which i want to give my love to

    not all the ******** of "who" you are
    but of the potential of who you can become
    baby i just love you and all of the potential of you

    now if only you could to

    see the potential

    baby the potential

    of being a "me and you" potential

    (baby)love you and your potential

    This poem should be read by all the men who fit these poetic shoes. It is definitely a picture of all the women who patiently wait and hope for change. Sometimes the wait pays off...sometimes it doesn't.

    Enjoyed the read on this one, especially:

    baby the potential in you is remarkable
    i just dont know why you won't let it shine through
    sometimes i even wonder if you
    knew that the potential of you is incrediable
    but it is covered up by layers of
    bling-bling, with a thick layer of bitterness mixed in with immaturity
