As Long As You Live - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis


Love is the kingdom of life and,
The truth is the kingdom of peace.

Patience is the key of life;
So, dream on and, work towards your dreams! !
Because, love is the joy of life.

The earth is made up of teachers and students,
As we learn from each other;

You are sick and tired of the systems of life!
But, don't give up on your dreams.

As long as you live;
Because, Rome was not built in a day.

Love! And be loved with the works of peace;
For, there is always tomorrow.

There is always hope in life! !
As long as you live;
For, the eyes of love are the eyes of peace.

    A very deep and strong wisdom expressed here.
    Our soul knows the truth and the more we connect to our soul
    the more hope we have.
    Your optimism is indeed truly inspiriing.
