[Poetry] HUMAN– An Exquisite Poem Written By A Nigerian Poet, Ololade Edun.

HUMAN' is a poetically-written prose escalated with exquisite inclination of human with love— Pawners Paper

"HUMAN is a poetically-written prose escalated with exquisite inclination of  humans with love . He emphasizes expertly on the sacrifices, betrayals, memories , rejections, hurts and the indemnities that come with toxic love through the exclusive use of metaphor to relay and metamorphose his emotion. He scripted further and advises everyone to "own your scars and wear that brokeness like perfume" and to accept their flaws as humans."

To fall in love with a stranger is to take a leap of faith out of a conundrum filled with chaos; you try to protect your sanity as his words hits your heart with alacrity. You take curious baby steps towards this relationship, again and again and again you try to back out, to leave this scene before you hurt, to protect your fragile heart before he says those three words. Before he professes his love, his words and his bonds and his oath. For 'I Love You' is now a curse you don't want to hear ever again.
To remember the past is to drag your muse to marred moments of miseries as you relive every day in the depressing world of betrayals; you sleep with soaked pillows and swollen face, hug your Teddy who listen as you cry your heart out every night before dawn. On cold stones of rejection and wet pyres of hatred you prepare meals, again and again and again you curse the day you met Làbùrù. The one who blackmailed your sanity and broke your heart until you became suicidal and crave to end this pain with pills.
To walk down the aisle in the arms of your lover is to create utopia out of Nigeria; you sleep on gunpowder and wake up in graveyards of buried potentials, of coloured and broken boys now turn withered sunflower, of girls who grew up waging wars as outcast and demons unfit for society. You toss your feelings into waste bins because you are not ready to leave the closet, again and again and again you fervently hope that a miracle will happen and the sad events of your past won't ruin this precious moments you have. 
I do pray you remember, to love yourself and hold on to that you desire, that you do you and shamelessly want you, that love and happiness, betrayals and hatred are all what makes us human. So own your scars and wear that brokenness like perfume, for you are far from being perfect, you are beautiful and no make-up can cover the fact that you are HUMAN. 
To a friend who needs to read this,
To Ayo.
