The Lessons Learnt After - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Civil Wars and the lessons learnt after,

World Wars and the lessons learnt after,

This will only change with righteous laws! !

Following after the truth.

The day of peace,

The day of joy! !

You need the flowers of Spring and the light of Summer to teach you the truth! !

Why are you hiding yourself from the truth?





To teach you wisdom;
