Potential is a burden
uneasily carried until it is fulfilled.
As I have been aware of my own
ability to think and reason,
I have been aware of my potential.

Whether or not the potential
actually exists does not matter.
The fact that there is a possibility that it exists
leads me to search for a way to fulfill my potential.

Along the way, there are many roads
but, not all reach potential’s destination.
Still, I have traveled those roads willingly
and am the better for it for now I stand at the threshold
of an opportunity to fulfill my potential.

It is my goal to go beyond the traditional boundaries
of established criteria to investigate the linkages
between social phenomena and behavior
by melding creativity with critical thinking
and moving the theoretical into the realm of practicality.
This is my potential, if, I have the strength to lift it.

a good sista friend of mine

was speaking on this same theme. I love the way you captured what is real for many of us who are cognizant of our chosen path, and have our "bearings"... much, much depth and personal meaning in this right here...

Still, I have traveled those roads willingly
and am the better for it for now I stand at the threshold
of an opportunity to fulfill my potential


You are my true guru brotha

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
