Education - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Education in peace brings peace,
Education in love brings love,
Education in care brings care,
But education in war brings war to all mankind.

    Education is what you make of it.
    It can make or mar progress.
    A concise quatrain!

    Edward Kofi Louis,
    Your poem is a startling message. Education done from a humanitarian perspective always reaps good but even under the worst of circumstances I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ steps in an brings His help to those trapped in an awful situation of false education with evil intentions by those in control. Our prayers do not go unnoticed by Jesus. Prayer is our hope in Christ Blessings for your voice. I pray it is a lovely sound to the dying and living..........................Kathy

    We want progress, achievement, and good things in life and as such education is important in an individual's upbringing. The poet sees the education for bringing peace, love and care and also well being of the world which is a good poem. (Report) Reply
