What If I Turn The Page? – Ahemen Korgba | Poetry
I discovered a book and it was the book of my life
And in it what did I find?
The highs and lows that I had been through
The accurate details blew my mind.
On and on I read every word
Enthralled by all it contained
Until a certain section caught my eye
And what a mixture of feelings it stirred.
To this specific place, my attention was drawn
Mainly because it showed where I was now
But it also revealed that though time had passed
Yet, from this page I had failed to move on.
Lulled by the comfort I had found in this spot
I had inadvertently imprisoned myself here
Or was I actually arrested by fear?
The fear of the unknown ahead
Whichever it was, this discovery inspired me to take a leap of faith
Within the book and in my life, I knew the move I must make
With courage taking the lead, I had to finally turn the page.
