Circuminsession

By Joshua Synon

What is fire without that for which it burns?

What is money without her for whom he earns?

What is justice without those for whom to serve?

What is a mother without a daughter to preserve?

What is an object without that which perceives?

What is truth without her for whom he believes?

What is war without that from which it breeds?

What is a father without a son whom to feed?

What is death without that which it kills?

What is reason without her for whom he wills?

What is the sun without those for whom it shines?

What is love without those for whom it binds?
