In the Absense of Fear

In the absence of fear

We have no hesitations

Not part of the conquest

And the many frustrations

In the absence of fear

We are without discretion

In matters of the heart

Can lead some into a path of aggression

In the absence of fear

We test our limit

Saints and sinners

Conditioning the human spirit

Consumed by greed

Pitty for the soul

The soul in perpetual need

Consumed by rage

Return to the holy book

Now, read the page

Consumed by lust

Ignite a passion

Disregard any trust

Consumed by pride

Too much self interest

Ready to confide?

Consumed by Envy

Another entrapment gained

Just along for the ride

Consumed by sloth

Idle hands and idle mind

Said by the man of the cloth
