By Tikum Mbah Azonga

I`m out at last
Out in this whole wide world
And walking tall and free
And taunting the wanton lilies.

If it wasn`t for the haunted flag
I would have gone out again
Like Maye Sunsaye
Just to test the celebrity waters.

OFF THE LIMB.this poem is quite interesting as it begins with the person talking being free to do what he wishes as he becomes an adult he thinks of moving away from his home land but he is not able to go due to the excess love he has for his home land

You`re right. Leaving the country is a big challenge because one is taking a leap in the dark. Deciding to pack ones things overseas and returning home is an even greater challenge because already, one has got accustomed to the comfortable life style of the West.

Where should the blame e placed? is it on the white man or on our bad governance i ask this question because most youths are left with no choice than to go for greener pastures.
