Potential

August 2, 2008
By Tina McQuigg, Whitehouse, TX

Capable of being,
But not yet in existence.
Said goal can be reached,
But only with persistence.


One could be more,
One could be less.
This could end with failure,
Or with success.


There's a definite illness,
With a possible cure.
This possible person,
Could quite possibly assure--


The patient in the waiting room,
Who is patiently waiting,
For the results from a test,
On this burden that's weighting.
