About Justice

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

Justice lives in the minds of the pious,

born of belief and a surrender to faith,

an affectation of established moral bounds.

Justice without moral consideration is simply balance,

with no necessary frame of time,

just a knowledge that all will eventuate in balance,

a scientific and universal law and the state of being.

What we see as unjust cannot be in real terms,

as consequence follows all actions,

in a physical sense and as a soul,

passing through the lessons and growth within life.

Judgement on circumstances of injustice,

shows more ignorance than compassion.

As a human being we are driven to help those in need,

and so we should, out of kindness and understanding,

but believing all roads lead to injustice is blindness in truth.

Each second of life bears experience born of thought,

past and present, wise and unwise.

The consequences of this radiates out from our lives,

giving birth to all manner of judgements and assumptions,

creating actions from without and within.

Justice is served daily, monthly yearly and in a lifetime,

to find eventual balance in an ordered universe,

yet how it appears to us is usually far different,

giving us reason to affect change.

In this pursuit we experience possible growth and understanding,

regardless of what we see as just or unjust;

these are relative terms.

Never confuse moral stance as right,

pain as unjust or suffering as needing blame.

Justice, or more pointedly balance,

needs not our consideration

and lives within its own boundaries,

quite oblivious to ours.

      Thanks for reading NiaLee, and your comment. Although the poem is not about cannibus per say, more about how we judge people in certain circumstances; but I agree there needs to be change in how we deal with these problems. I appreciate your time in speaking your mind. Do drop by again.

      Beautiful and deep. Thank you.

      Yes Justice exist and what goes up does come down, different ways, different places but yes what we put out there will come back to us.

      So, when it comes to cannabis, I am tired of all that fuss made about a natural plant...especially when it feels and is like the prohibition of the new century...will it end? Regulating and controlling would be better. Now, they are shutting down the practices and stores in California for fraud and abuses, what do we want? People to get themselves in danger going to dangerous people or places to by produce or product that are not safe? I am a healthy living green lover. I do not drink or smoke, but I do believe that the consequences of this prohibition should advice us on doing things differently. Peace, love and blessings on all. NiaLee
