Two People Living On This Earth - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

There are two people living on this earth but,
We don't really see them most of the time;
There are supernatural beings and human beings,
And with the best and the worst of life among us too!
The ugly and the beautiful,
The slow and the fast,
The male and the female,
The conscience and the unlearned,
The bold and the coward,
The circumcised and the uncircumcised,
The wise and the fool,
The positive and the negative,
The black and the white,
For these are the Creator's images on this earth.
Two people indeed are in the midst of things,
And like the dead and the living;
But to fail or to pass an exam depends on you.
Your faith may lead you on like your hopes and dreams,
With people who love you and those who hate you;
But the noise of the air is like the surface of the sea,
And like the mystic of life's own rules.
To be near or to be afar off,
And like a hard worker and a lazy worker;
But a boy or a girl who comes after birth to continue the ceation is like,
An incumbent and the opposition of a government seat!
Two identies indeed in the status of mankind,
Normal and the enlargement of things to think about;
For the selfish and the selfless are compacted together,
With many troubles to seek for peace at last!
Two identities on this earth,
And like the White House and the Black Stone in distance apart!
But the dark and the light will bring in reality,
And like the up and down of one's life on this earth.
