A Haiku - Justice

Is there a righteous judge of us all?

Is justice just, or just an ideal?

Justice, pure and simple?



I just want justice.

Is that too much to expect?

Comes with a high price.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Too high for some, too.

Delayed justice... is denied?

Some say so. Me, too.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The scales of justice

Too tipped by cash to be true?

Whose justice, mine, yours?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Trust in man made false?

Taking justice in one's hands,

Righteous hands or blind?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Give me some fairness;

Just a courtroom of my peers,

God help them to be fair.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Death will close the books.

Man's justice no longer sure.

God's justice is pure.

I think today it's best we look to the Lord for justice to come into our lives.

Gypsy Rose Lee: To be just and fair, men who judge others would need to know what is in our hearts. Fortunately, God knows us and what is in our hearts. May our hearts be filled with compassion and free of deceit.
