Poetry Mondays – Potential is a Lake by Ryan Fu (The Hated Ones)

If we have to we have the potential to be anything…I like this a definite picker upper.

Be Like Water

Crescent-Lake-in-Chinas-Gobi-Desert

Potential is a lake

in the desert.

Slowly evaporating

away until

there is nothing. 

Nothing but

the remanence

of what could

have been.

Only the dead

live there.

A vessel

filled with

the might-have-beens.

Surrounded by bodies

of regret

&

guilt. 

It dries up

&

blows away

until it becomes

dust in the wind.
