potential-the word
gives so much of hope
is scary at the same time
with its uncertainty
-what if expectations are misplaced
-what if blame is led at my door
for possible failure
and disappointment knocks
fear keeps me awake
hope keeps me half-alive
optimism is a mindset
pessimism appears closer home
Life in limbo….

  1. My apologies for replying so late – life and work intruded.

    I feel much the same as you, about that word – ‘potential’ – and how well it fits the prompt.

    Thanks for adding to the Limbo prompt
