Engrave this Quote If it all be for naught, for nothingness at last,
Why does God make the world so fair?
Why spill this golden splendor out across the western hills,
And light the silver lamp of eve?
Why give me eyes to see, and soul to love so strong and deep?

Then, with a pang this brightness stabs me through,
And wakes within rebellious voice to cry against all death?
Why set this hunger for eternity to gnaw my heartstrings through,
If death ends all?

If death ends all, then evil must be good,
Wrong must be right, and beauty ugliness.
God is Judas who betrays His Son,
And with a kiss, damns all the world to Hell, --
If Christ rose not again.

written by Unknown soldier, killed in World War I
-Anon. Tell a Friend
