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.
