Poem Edition: Without Love

Without love

We are nothing

Without love

We are a loud clanging

Without love

We may speak truth

But all people hear is clanging

Without love

All we do is tainted with anger and hate

Without love

Fear takes root

Without love

No one can hear a word we speak

Without love

We are no different from the world

Christ came to this world

With love

He died on the cross

Because of love

He didn’t come with sword in hand

He didn’t speak of hating people

He renounced fear

He broke down divisions

He brought hope for the oppressed, the poor, the broken, the abused, and the foreigner

He came out of love

And left telling us to love

For without love

His death and resurrection is for nothing

Without love

The gospel and our hope is nothing
