The word potential as defined by the dictionary:
Qualities and abilities that lead to future success or usefulness.
But I define it a little differently
To me potential is every student here
Every soul invested in this atmosphere
From the youngest at merely sixteen
All the way to the grandma to be
From the young high school kid
To a professional with a Ph.D.
My classmates are the exemplification
Of true Islamic education
An embodiment of excellence
With talent that’s endless
I can’t help but truly admire
The way each of you can inspire
The confidence you instill
And your unwaivering will
I’ve learned so much from each of you
About life, giving, and virtue
This life is about more than you
And I see it to be true.
I ask our Lord, up above,
To shower you all with mercy and love
I ask Him to bless and give you success
In every step you take and every change you make
Stand tall my friends.
This poem was written in honor of each and every one of my classmates this year. #Qalam2015
