Little ditty about Buddhahood

Nobody owns buddhahood,
it is not something that can be gifted to you due to your requests and blessings,
otherwise the Buddha would have given it to you already;
it is not something that can be held from you because you
already own buddha nature that is your potential for buddhahood.
But you must realise this potential for yourself.
Based upon your own effort, your progress relies upon your own effort.
So develop a realization of emptiness for the benefit of all beings.
