We have come to the cross-roads
And I must either leave or come with you.
I lingered over the choice
But in the darkness of my doubts
You lifted the lamp of love
And I saw in your face
The road that I should take.
I saw this poem by Kwesi Brew, a Ghanian poet, years ago. It has remained with me since. It’s short but evokes a strong emotion. And now, I am calling on you to tell me what you think the theme or analysis is? Who was Brew talking to? When can one use this poem in life to communicate a certain message.
A poem is often subject to diverse individual interpretations so I hope you don’t google to find inspiration from what others have written about it.
Now I can’t wait to see the interpretations you will give to this poem. Do let me know in the comments section.
