Where is peace?
Where is charity?
Where is happiness?
Where is trust?

We lost it someplace
In the past.

Where is love?
Where is innocence?
Where is beauty?
Where is forgiveness?

Where is belief?
Where is fairness?
Where is wisdom?
Where is compassion?

Where is hope?
Where is honesty?
Where is tolerance?
Where is choice?

Where is faith?
Where is respect?
Where is integrity?
Where is freedom?
