If There Were! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

if there were no darkness,
we would never find the stars!
if there were no waves,
the moon would be powerless.

if there were no bullets,
dead bodies would rise.
if there were no dreams,
we could not face reality!

if there were no hunger,
we would not have a reason.
if there were no suffering,
we could not find freedom!

if there were no lovers,
we would not have children.
if there were no children,
we'd have no reason to be!

if there were no deaths,
life would not be as precious.
if there were no animal within,
we could not find passion!

if there were no fires,
we would be lost to darkness.
if there were no darkness,
we would never find the stars!
