Potential

By AG

My potential is to be successful
To be a better father
To not be bothered what other people say about me
To always keep my mind free
Free of insecurities
Free to spread my wings
Free to sing
My potential is to be free
To be the Real Me
To work for a successful company
To pay bills to make ends meet
My potential is beyond what I now see
Prison cells and white concrete
To make it back to the streets
My potential is to be a normal American
To open doors to inner city kids
Suffering from poverty
That’s my potential

    I love the way in which you talk about fatherhood here. Too often people just look at the first part of providing for one’s famil y (” To work for a successful company / To pay bills to make ends meet”) and not the critical job of raising the next generation (“To open doors to inner city kids / Suffering from poverty”). I wish you the best of luck on your success.
