potential?

always looking outward,
always seeking forward, upward
eyes wide toward the world

yet, what about within?
what happens when the glance
turns to a stare
in to the depths

is it really that troubling…?
or maybe the potential is too great
the resources too abundant
the energy too frenetic to harness
and so,
better left unexplored
lest the inevitable heights
be too great to fathom,
too much to channel

i fear the resources in this world,
in this place,
in this time
are too limited to bring forth
that which is in me, but not of me
