The Scales of Justice Tilts
The sounds of clanging
beyond prison walls.
Eerie does the dawn.
Somewhere on a damp bed
She ponders; remembers
The wrongs of yesteryear.
Ignorance came, spinning a yarn
Into her life;
Carving a knife
Into her heart.
Tonight she will see the sad face of Justice.
She prostrates herself …
For the victim, the perpetrators, the relatives ...
For those who came before …
For those who would come after…
A golden teardrop,
Heaven’s silent invitation.
Light streams through the rugged bars
As her soul is taken up.
The Libran pendulum has lost its balance,
But Grace remains awake.

~ Awakening The Inner Light
"Divine Justice is nothing short of divine Forgiveness. Human justice says that if somebody has stolen something, he has to be punished. Human justice tells us that this is the right thing, and it gets tremendous pleasure by punishing the person. But when divine Justice operates, even if it takes an outer form, inside this Justice there is tremendous compassion..." - Sri Chinmoy
