The Maze - Poem by Irene Ibiwari Ikiriko

The universe turned black with haze,
The people, confusingly lost in the maze.
Unknown was the beginning and the end.
Unknown was how best to make amends.
Every human required a Messiah,
One to be a geenie to their plenteous desires.
Desires to live through the maze or within the maze,
That, I was unsure of.

How could a maze exist within a sphere?
How could tunnels network its atmosphere?
I sensed great enigma,
I was one tiny piece seeking an eureka.
If only this maze had lower perplexity,
So that both grey matter and grey hairs can decipher.
For how could a maze be tapered or rounded at both ends,
If the universe was what they say it is.
