Edward Kofi Louis (13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)
Be At peace With One Another
To eat the fish from the Pond,
To eat the fish from the river,
To eat the fish from the lake,
To eat the fish from the sea,
To eat the fish from the ocean;
Like the Looks of a beautiful woman and,
The Looks of a handsomel man in your town!
However, water is everywhere on this earth,
Yet stil, many don't have enough to drink.
With care and concern for others;
Because, little drops of water makes a mighty ocean.
With the dignity of a man and, the dignity of a woman;
And, with the objects of creation all around us.
Like a lamp-stand of pure gold;
With an ovation fit for peace, unity and joy.
They are everywhere;
But, do show mercy and compassion to all your neighbours.
Be at peace with one another;
And respect the grey headed.
Like cheese from a cow's milk;
And like a Spider in a king's palace.
