Ingredients of Life

What's a sweeter gift than love?
What's the greatest wealth than hope?
What's a richer state than faith?

It behooves you to live by your faith,
And keep aflame the spirit of love,
Woe befalls him who derides hope:

Nothing is drearier than a life bereft of hope,
And he's a lost soul who's without faith,
But unfortunate is he of all who's without love.

All is lost when one loses love, hope and faith!

I am flabbergasted, Abdul. If this was in my contest and did not win as you say, I must never have seen it!! Once in a while, I will have someone tell me that they entered one of my contests, but some glitch makes it so that the poem never is seen on my end. That's all I can figure out because looking at this one, it looks GREAT to me!! You have not gone against any of the rules. so sorry.
