The Girl at the Margin

Do you know how many times I have been shown the exit route? Countless times but I ignore the clue. Do you know how many battles I have won with my naked hand? None, except the one I won when I stooped to conquer. I don't know why the entrance porch is so inviting, With its thick array of uncommon cobwebs? Today, I am at the border line, With the multiple crossroads. The exit beckons, I must not resist. I am at the margin after all. I think it is time to say goodbye And I'm saying goodbye in my worded silence. I have been on the borderline for long. It is time for quiet goodbye, I am the girl at the margin I now have the nerve to say goodbye. But again, goodbye might be a loser's dialet. Maybe, I should tarry for yet a little while. Yes, I am the girl at the margin, I think this isn't the best time for goodbye.

Modupe, I hope this is not a poem about leaving . Leaving a place where you feel you should no longer be? leaving the world? One cannot really know, but i can only hope it is fictional if it's the second case. you show a lot of writing talent with this poem, Modupe. Please keep up with your talent.

No no, I am not leaving anywhere. Lol. I just needed to express myself about a nasty situation and the title "The Girl at the Margin" just popped into my brain. Lol
