potential

potential is an ugly word.

a pass for the unfocused flowers

an excuse

"you would be so great if you would only try"

"you would be so great if your teachers were better"

"you would be so great if your life were easier"

"if"

"if"

"if"

the only thing standing in between me and my greatest self is focus.

teach me focus

do not teach me that I am a what if.

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
