Great Potential

Melted Ice Imprint
Once I had great potential.
I was unaware of any limitations.
I felt I had total control.

Later, I was smashed down by reality.
I saw no escape anymore.
The world was but a burden.

I have a better perspective today.
I can see the good in me.
I can accept the undesirable.
The time I spend alone is never wasted.
