Potential

Why do I hate that word?
Don’t answer; do you know what
rhetorical means?

it doesn’t matter. I do like beginnings,
and that is where the rub is–
because the potential is unknown;
the power to create is everywhere.
“Come along on this journey, ” or
“Would you like to learn something new?”
Potential lives here first.

Maybe magician’s smoke obscures
the view. I can see right through.

Yet, humans have more than potential.
They have gifts. They have birthrights.
The have capacities of growth immeasurable.
They can affect the whole world.

Did you hear that?
The whole world.

And you wouldn’t want to cheat the world,
would you?
She might haunt you forever if you try.
