In The Absence Of - Poem by Harrison Fairchild

In the absence of love
There's only hate
In the absence of hope
There's only despair

Hope and love give strength and healing
How can we live without it
But hate and despair give pain and sorrow
So much that we drown in it

In the absence of faith
we have would no religion
In the absence of the sunshine
There would be only the rain

Take away the sun
Then the world would be cold
Without faith in the world
How could the scriptures be told

In the absence of peace
there's only war
In the absence of virtue
There's only sin

Both peace and virtue are the pedestals
together that hold the world on their stands
Sin and war are the destroyers of all life
Together they corrupt and harm man

Take away the order
Then all we have is chaos
What do we do
In their absence
