My name is Justice. I was given to humanity as a gift long ago. As with all gifts given to mankind, I have been misused and my true purpose has been forgotten. I represent fairness and strength. I am timeless and ageless. I show no emotion. There is no hatred in me. There is no favoritism. I was created to weigh the information in search of the truth and cast my sword forward in judgement of those that have wronged others. I was created to look human as a reminder that humans can keep the virtues of honor and honesty. I am blindfolded as a reminder that the eyes can deceive. They can cast premature and incorrect judgement. They can be tricked and misled easily. While they are called the windows to the souls, not all souls allow their truest nature to be seen. It is also an unnoticed statement advising humanity that the eyes of humans are not wanted or needed by those beings who have been given the power to judge. I am beauty, power, and grace drenched in honesty and simplicity.

The honesty that I was created with shows itself clearly. I brought with me a painful prophecy. I have seen the seeds of this prophecy grow into plants. I have seen people carry its pollen with them to all the corners of this place. I have seen the seeds spread across oceans and penetrate other cultures. I have seen the seeds grow into fierce jungles of skewed judgement. I have seen the jungle covered in the tangled vines of manipulation. I have seen the venomous creatures controlled by greed come out of these horrible jungles to fill the halls of the places where I stand with so much confusion that the innocent leave unprotected and the guilty go unpunished. All the while, I have carried with me the symbol professing these times and the punishment that will come when the worst of these times has come. The prophecy begins with my scales. The scales I carry were always tipped. They are not balanced because I was a gift given to the one creature in nature that can not maintain balance, humanity. I was given to the only thing in nature that can create an object such as money, attach a value to that object that would cause people to turn against each other, and then use it to control all of society. Yes, my scales have always been tipped, constantly reminding me that I was given an impossible task. My sword is held downward. It is not pointed at anyone. It is pointed at the Earth. My wrists are relaxed. I was placed here at rest because I would have to wait here for ages before my sword is to be lifted against injustice. I have learned to be so grateful that my eyes are covered. In all these years, I have not developed an attachment to humanity. When the time comes for me to tighten my grip around my sword and use it to cast out the essence of true injustice, my eyes wont look at humanity in pity. I will not harbor a doubt within me. I will feel relief in that ages were given and humanity refused to learn the lessons that were clearly taught and the values that were clearly presented to them. I will finally have my vengeance for being reduced to a decorative object standing in the center of a building, on the side of a courtroom, or a small area on a desk after having been forced to represent a location or a person who has lost the true meaning of Justice.
Humanity has been given many gifts and has squandered all of them. Here, I stand patiently, collecting dust, holding my tipped scales and my sword awaiting the day that humanity is finally charged for their many crimes against Life, Liberty, Justice, Peace, Nature and the countless other gifts that were given.

Blindfolded, I still can see more clearly than the humans that claim to rule the Earth. The wait is long but Justice will prevail without the help of humanity. So here I stand, faithfully. I stand for Justice!

Justice, elusive justice. This is a great reminder of the ideal that Justice represents. It is sad that justice is so seldom done for the innocent or the guilty in our own country and around the world. Well done!

Hi Writinglover. I like to become the voice of something that was not given a voice. Symbolism is a favorite.

Thank you Frank. Blind Justice really doesn't exist anymore so I figure it was the right time to bias her with my views. So happy that you enjoyed it.

Hi Secret-writer-awesome-mom:

I am in awe of justice as you serve it, pure and brutal. I see the mafia call eye, eye to the world of justice and wait for your relief. Beautiful, inspiring and meaningful. If I read your thriller I might never survive the terror , does justice swing her sword ??????

Thank you so much Ausseye. I appreciate you taking the time to enjoy my work. Justice will swing her sword eventually, the question is where will it strike?

Would Lady Justice settle all debates out there? The abortion debate? The gay marriage debate? The racial debates? She settled the Zimmerman vs. Martin debate.


newenglandsun 3 years ago

Guantanamo Bay? War? Racial and religious prejudice? Sexual discrimination?


newenglandsun 3 years ago

I forgot terrorism.

She hasn't settled any human debates. That is the point, she is a misused symbol. When it is time to settle up I suppose it will be against the masters of injustice as a whole.


newenglandsun 3 years ago

Ah. Yes, the human filth parade.


newenglandsun 3 years ago

Humans seek power. Not justice. They do not seek equality. So instead, they lie to others, they cheat others, they steal from others and commit other horrible acts.

Sad, isn't it?


newenglandsun 3 years ago

Yeah. But it's the reality.

What really disgusts me is that when I first heard of abortion, I was all for it so at least I could have sex with somebody without them getting fat. Yeah, that's horrible and it's not sarcasm.

My dad's leaning more-so toward being okay with abortion and perfectly fine with it because it's not like we can actually define what a "human" is any way. Then again, he also tries to shoehorn scientific findings into the Bible by arguing that "God breathed life into a Neanderthal [Adam]". Wouldn't surprise me if he was secretly a racist at this point though.

You can't help how people think. I don't really develop strong opinions about many things including abortion because no rule fits all situations. It's just one of those things that fall under the category of 'it is really none of my business and it isn't my place to judge'. Besides, those with such judgemental opinions never take care of the child afterwards. The child pays the ultimate price behind closed doors. What good is will without the ability to make our own choices?

I agree. It shows the futility of society. I was only referring to my initial stance on abortion as something that would be totally cool which would simply rid myself of obligation and serve to benefit my enjoyment. But yes, there are many people who really are in a situation where there's no better opportunity and sometimes ending a life of another is the best option. I find certain arguments on both sides to be drastically inconsistent.

I find many sides of different issues to be inconsistent at times. I try to remain neutral on everything without holding a strong opinion one way or another. One side might be less hypocritical in that they act out what they say they believe, but they are not free of guilt simply because of this. They might come out as jerks at times and oppressive people. The other side might be more for the equality of all but at the same time, their liberalness can often blind them to the inconsistencies that they bare. There is no right side. There are heroes and villains on both sides.

This article was written by Rachel Held Evans in 2008 so it might be a little outdated.

On the one side, she at least is consistent with her stances. On the other side, I cannot understand why she would want to trust another human being to actually fulfill her ideas.

I find people who do not bend or evolve with the ever changing world around them to be funny especially since I know that so few of them would actually die for what they believe in. Unfortunately, these same people start to decompose from within should life decides to show them that they were wrong in their beliefs and that is never a humorous sight.

That's what I like about reading Rachel's blogs. She's always challenging the way she once believed and the way she once viewed things. It's interesting. She has written about her experiences growing up in a religiously fundamentalist setting.

One of her books is titled "Evolving in Monkey Town: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask the Questions". I always find people who make different changes and corrections in their beliefs throughout the year to be the most interesting people in the world. I've stumbled into people like this on occasion. "I once believed that, then this, now I believe this." I can be a bit like that too. "I once believed in and felt strongly about x, now I really think that x is ambiguous and am leaning toward y, now I think z is better."

It's hard to "sell" things to people who are always constantly changing their beliefs although you'd think it'd be pretty easy. It's easy to "sell" something to someone who is rigid. Because likely, they're already puppets of a system and are okay with remaining puppets.
