Inequality 2 - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Creation,
With the Blue Planet made for mankind;
And Eve was made out of Adam,
For peace, unity and love!
To share and care for the earth,
But mankind grew up into another form! !
Coming out with greed to collect everything to his or her side.
The ways of creation,
Beginning with equality;
Then came inequality!
With a division seen between the Rich and the Poor today.
The muse of inequality,
Of a big question in our minds today! !
With the muse of life, leading to hatred and war in many ways;
Because, one gets more than the others on this earth.
Water! ! !
Many are still thirsty on earth today;
Even though, the earth is full of water.
Money! ! !
Many are still living with less than a Dollar a day;
Seen mostly in what is called 'Third World Countries' today.
Food! ! !
With starvation all over the world;
While many go hungry and, FEW control the WEALTH of the Earth today.
Life is not fair! ! !
With the mask of inequality floating around the world;
Question marks without answers,
But, when is mankind ready to change this
tide?
