~ If There Be No God

If there be no God,
Then all the stars, that in their place
Have aeons roamed abroad,
Would long ago have lost the trace
Of orbits-if there be no God.

If there be no God,
Then justice in the heart of man
Would be a fake-a senseless fraud;
Each for himself alone would stand-
No honor-if there be no God.

I believe that if there was no god, there would be no war, scientific advancements would come uncontrollably, there would less racism, and man would be able to look at the stars and not think of letting god do all the work but helping to move humanity forward.

There does seem to be a shortage of justice. Justice seems to be for sale to the highest bidder nowadays though doesn’t it? Good write!
