Unbounded Potential

by | Poetry, Writing | 0 comments

The cry of a new baby born
Will ring soon through out this place
It is being grown, knit together in wonder
while in the womb he patiently waits

What will unfold in this precious life?
What will he become?
Currently a bundle of unbounded potential
Waiting to be taught and valued and loved

Some have no grasp on how to raise
A child in this world we live
Values and respect ever changing
Fears and pressures to overcome

But in this life there is potential beyond measure
For this child to be all that he can be
All we need to do is not limit him
Through how we speak and act and are.

Encouragement and love unbounded
And are the ingredients to release the potential in full
Discouragement and ridicule will only harm and limit
This once unbounded potential.

Children are a precious gift
We need to look after and care
Our responsibility is to make sure
Of our unreserved love they are completely aware.

From the overflow of our love their potential will be released
And all we’ve hoped and wanted for them will not matter
For they will have become all they can be.
They will be rooted and grounded in love.

Thoughts behind Unbounded potential

One of my older sisters is expecting, due in September time. You can probably imagine the excitement there is. This will be my dads seventh grandchild!

So my thoughts were on this little life and the questions arising about its future and the unlimited potential that little life at the moment holds. All this little soul needs is to be nurtured in love and left to grow. And through that we will see the potential released.

Lets never be guilty of being people who limit our children’s potential through our negative words and deeds. Let us nurture our children to be all they can be.

I truly believe love is the answer to most problems in life. If we can just get that right then maybe, no definitely, we will have a brighter tomorrow.

Why I walk you home …

It may be due to some ancient code Written in my DNA From an almost forgotten notion of ages past When men were gentlemanly Maybe how I was brought up was a factor In why I carry out this deed Why whenever I can I like to make sure Someone gets safely to where they...


Sadness is a state of mind, an emotion, triggered by circumstance Like loss, or hurt Or some other happenstance What makes us sad? Why do we get this way? Can't we just not think and forget What makes us feel this way? But I think to do so Would be the greatest...

The best remedy

Precious Moments

You will never fully understand How much I cherish the moments that we share As time goes on and fills so quickly How much fewer these moments are spare Spare to spend laughing and joking Sharing stories of our days Spare to spend crying and comforting Sharing a warm...

Her Rage and Beauty

The power, the strength, the wonder. Unseen yet evident. On her wings she carries life giving seed Placing and planting where she chooses Landscapes are changed in an instant When she chooses to express her creativity She whirls and wisps through mountain valley paths...

The Show That Unfolds

As I travel along a lonely passenger In this vehicle filled with many Within and without are two worlds that provide a show as I go on my journey Within I see sitting two seats down from me a mother and her children One on the seat and one on the knee So that they...

A single thought

A single thought reminds me Of the sin that bound me And of the grace that freed me to live a life of love A single word sustains me When this world discourages me It reminds and affirms in me of my Saviour's love A single act done selflessly reminds me of His mercy...
