Melanie Emikohe

Life Edited - Poem by Melanie Emikohe

A life edited accordingly,
scripted to fit to what
they think and drew a maze
where one must lead
to find the curves,
tested safe and trodden.

Many souls whose names'
forgotten, lost to worms,
would have been Legends;
vanquished for wig or mask,
a display of conformity~
suits most to a public dance.
