A Better Footing - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Slence is the best answer to a fool!
But think twice when a mad man throws a stone against you;
For tis world is not as you do see it,
And it means a lot in many ways.

There is more hatred among people than love,
But we all have to do our best in putting things right;
For this world is all that we have as at now,
And we all need a better footing for doing the thing.
