Borderland

I stand here

At the boundary

The border between

Here and there

Insignificant to look at

But deadly important

On one side

I’m safe

Free to come and go

As I please

Though knowledge be limited

But the other side

Not so safe

Where I would be trapped

Stuck, unable to return

But where magic is boundless

So I linger here

Between places

Neither in one or the other

Enjoying the benefits of both

Until the day

I have to choose

Where I belong


Written for Day 12 of A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017: Write a poem about boundaries or a boundary. Any length.
