A Better Place - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Let us love this world and put it in a better shape than hate,
Let us share true love with one another to make the world go round;
For our negative actions will surely lead us to fights and wars,
But true love from us all will make the world a better place.

    But true world from us all will make the world a better place.

    True words.
    Like Michael Jackson of blessed memory would say:
    ...heal the world
    and make it a better place
    for you and me and the entire human race...'

    True love
    Everybody talks about true love but what is true love? Unconditional approach to people - can anybody do it? We have our own prejudices and to that degree, we really suffer. Who can love the entire world unconditionally? Countries cannot. Political parties cannot. People cannot. See, unity is in the heart of everybody but human intellect always discriminates. This is the main difficulty. (Report) Reply

    A Better Place
    A great positive message! Why do people generally in the process desire peace and all of its' siblings positive. We are designed that way. It is not by accident that those that have even been indoctrinated in evil of every kind and brain-washed can be healed and taught. Why does someone desire to be healed, to come to mental and emotional health. Jesus christ made us to be receivers of His love and salvation. Excellentt poem! Blessings Kathy

    it is not about love that shuld be prevailed through the earth but rather i think it is feeling and sense of humanity and philanthropic aids that should be mattered. love is a necessary factor but not enough. thanks dear louis. (Report) Reply

    So true. You are a wonderful poet and thinker. You were carried off by a tiny wing of time many years ago.

    I would value your comments on:

    Tiny Wing of Time, and
    Mirror City.

    I like to write about the mind. You might like to read The Mind.

    Kind regards
