A Piece Of Bread - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

The Book of Love,
The Book of Peace,
The Book of Unity,
The Book of Joy,
The Book of Care,
With all the cultures down the lane;
Living without the hatred of mankind.

Life!
Choose and seek for the truth;
For, there are others ready to destroy the earth.
Life!
A Piece of bread brought about the death of the monkey;
But, what is eaten is already eaten.

The muse of life!
The sunshine now exposes your nakedness;
And, what is written is written,
Like the 'Da Vinci Code'.

The muse of life!
Why sow cassava and expect to harvest mangoes?
For, whatever is destroyed in this world is,
Already destroyed with the muse of hatred and war.

The Book of Kindness,
The Book of Humility,
The Book of Harmony,
The Book of Life,
The Book of Sharing,
With the secret code of life to open the closed doors;
But, the monkey fell into the water and was drawn.

    Life is itself a book. we need to open it read it chant it.
    Why sow cassava and expect to
    harvest mangoes?
    For, whatever is destroyed in this
    world is,
    Already destroyed with the muse of
    hatred and war. (Report) Reply
