Things Without Their Essence - Poem by Green Peace

What is a flower without its fragrance?
What is a teacher without his encouragement or diligence?
What is a mother without her affection, mercy and pity?
What is a child without his obedience, honour and gaiety?
What is a tree without its shade?
What is a fan without its blade?
What is a candle without its light?
What is a sun which is not bright?
What is a pearl without its shine?
What is a drunkard without his wine?
What is education without its examination?
What is a doctor without its medical operation?
What is a cuckoo without its melodious music?
What is a musician without his enchanting lyric?
What is a soldier without his determination?
What is a devotee without his devotion?
What is a book without any knowledge?
What is a brother without his pledge?
What is a pen without its ink?
What is a philosopher who doesn't think?
What is an ocean without any waves on water?
What is a boat without its sailor?
What is a judge without his law and order?
What is a criminal without his crimes and ultimate surrender?
What is a car without any petrol?
What is a lover without any heart or soul?
What is a ball without its rotundity?
What is a player without his joy, cheer and sincerity?
Things are meant for what they are
Without their traits who will for them have any care?
