Eish NY, dont keep them simple because they are short of viable alternatives.Depending on another for happiness is a burdensome to both sides.Dont keep what is unsustainable, period!
A really perplexing question: if it means their chance at a happy life then why contemplate letting go? Mmmm I suppose an additional question would be if their being your [poetic persona's] wife would also mean a chance at a happy life for both parties.
Dear Posekyere,I agree with your general position. But I am not sure what the Persona is primarily concerned with.
Dear Abena,Thanks for brilliantly avoiding the trap of confusing the Poet with the Persona.The Persona is probably contemplating letting them go, because the woman wants out. The Persona can accept and let them go in peace, or fight to keep them together by any means necessary.
So just keeping dem cus all dey wan is only to be called your wife? Dey wan to be feel loved buh not keeping dem to bear dat name "wife" even though it is their dream to be called dat.
This poem and the comments sure got me thinking.I often think people (esp. in this part of the world) let people go way too easily - or give up too quickly without giving things a fair shot, or even out of pride. Thanks for your comment on my blog - check out my answer.
Dear Naa,Maybe I see your point. But have you read the other comments? There's another thought which holds that sometimes people let go too easily. Sometimes failing relationships can be salvaged.
Dear Adaeze,I totally agree with you. We must not give up on love too readily or easily.
I can see de woman dun wanna fight for wat belongs to her(maybe she dun wan)so both just let it slip away just like dat. Am sorting for a come back for both of dem.
Dear Naa,A comeback? You think you have enough facts to want that?
yeap! Who said de man's love for de wife has fade away. He wisssssssh!Man:-(thinking)oh wen will she come bac. I promise to luv her faithfully, oh how I wish(knocking @ door)oh ma God, wat I've dreamt n waited forWife:-(coyly)hey Darlyn, I did u wrong buh am back to make a aight(man smiling)I know i c an't live wifout uMan:- I was waiting for u, let 4get abt de past n luv all ova again(hugs,kisses).....hahahahha. "Lai Momo"
Her only chance of happiness or yours???... Go get her!
Y'all are getting me mighty confused.
Dear Savvy,Mistaking the Persona for the Poet?
Kiz, I have a confession close to yours!
Well since this is just about the Persona, I'm not even going to bother with my 2 cents today.Hows the weather?
Oh Anon, would still like to know what you think.It's rather sunny today!
Not at all. Just telling the poet what to do...no?
Incorrigible. I hear you, Savvy.
