Thy Justice

Updated on May 24, 2012


The verdict undeserved to innocent plea

Leaves morale dead, plagues human kind

While evil jeers a cunning, evil smile to thee

An innocent soul dies, thou are so blind



Is it fair my lord, such prejudice

Is it fair my Lord, Thy Justice



A soldier captured… gruesomely tortured

Country bothers not, nor do you

Doth thy conscience allows a patriot murdered

Is brotherhood’s death so true!


Why faith is blinded by shrewd scrupulous malice

Is it fair my lord, Thy Justice




A soul is born and his mother departs

Evil drinks away, the drunkard, his father

Alone a child bears pain and thwarts

No one to love, Left solely to scatter


In question the purpose, such creation, by thy apprentice

Is the life of the child my lord, Thy Justice



A bride newlywed, full of dreams and desire

Leaves her abode trusting the one she love

Bruised and abused, unable to respire

Broken trust, Shattered Dreams, her life she shove

Such acts of evil, blasphemy to your lattice

Is it always fair my lord, Thy Justice

      The concept of 'fair' requires an accepted base, a known starting point - you can't walk into a room and see one fellow holding a cookie and another fellow without one and assert that this is unfair . . . we need to know the how and why of only one out of two having a cookie. Perhaps it's perfectly fair, perhaps it's not fair to the fellow who has the cookie, etc - we need an accepted base, a known starting point to know what is fair.

      And, we (mankind) do not have that accepted base or known starting point. We know how things look to us, we know what we mean by 'equal', but 'equal' is not the same thing as 'fair' and not everything is as it looks to us. As we stand on this ball floating in space, it strikes me as ludicrous to shake our fist at God, the creator of all that exists, and say that according to us, according how things look to us, He's not being fair - what we think of as 'fair' and what true 'justice' is are two very different things.

      I'm not asserting there is anything amiss in the sentiments of your poem, I think it's good to reflect and ask questions - I'm only adding my own reflections as your piece prompts me.

      Voted up and awesome. As much as your words cry out for themselves Rahul I still stay by the Lord. I believe that even though these things bring doubts there is a purpose to everything under the sun and the rightly justice will come in Heaven above. God bless. I do love your poetry so this is just what I believe. Looking forward eagerly to your next poetic words.

      The animal species is intolerable to it's kind. No mercy is shown and no mercy is given. Like the King of the jungle man wants to be. No matter how he reaches that level to get there it doesn't matter to him. He will destroy, obliterate, rape, pillage, con and debate his way to achieve this power over man.

      Life is not fair and has never been fair. No two men are the same, we can cast the blame only on ourselves for being human. Were we made this way? where do we come from? Many will say from a God that created the Heavens and earth? many will say from the galaxies.Life is a mystery and has been from it's dawn.

      Who really knows? Only when we cross over to the other side, will man really know and if his sin's are memorized on our earth then they will be weighed and measured for or against him. I have seen many injustices in my time spent here on earth and in my opinion the scales of justice are heavily burdened with inhumanities to our fellow man.

      Revolution is in the air and man if we are to become at peace with out souls must take it back from the brutal forces that dominate us and control us. The day of reckoning is at hand my friend, peace and blessings to you. Your message is clear and understood and I feel the pain of the poor souls who are tortured and life taken from them. Beautifully written, voted UP.

      rahul...How often I have questioned....in times of unbearable sorrow and pain. Alas, nothing seems "fair."

      It follows, we must take heed of warnings and danger....and try to keep one another safe and at peace. Life goes on and the only escape is death....which is the final blow.

      Thank you for this thoughtful, deep and touching piece. It is beautiful.

      A beautifully written and thought provoking piece. It was a pleasure to read this Rahul. My observation has been that life is rarely fair and just so long as there continues to be greed, the lust for power and the insatiable pursuit for money which prevail as the means to every end, (over and above LOVE for one's fellow man),

      Sometime we think we get away with hurting and causing pain but it is only a matter of time.

      Beautifully written and as great writers do, give one much to ponder. This is not our true home and life here is fleeting for sure. He promises that one day there will be no more pain, suffering or tears. While we are still here, we must reach out to those who are suffering, and we must make wise choices as we have been given free will to either choose to do good or evil. We must take the blindfolds off. I agree with Vincent Moore's comments. Voted Way Up. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Rahul, what a mixture of emotions this poem has sparked! That, in and of itself, makes it a success.

      While I'm aware of the grave pain and suffering in the world, there is just as much beauty, gentleness and happy hearts. I don't believe God condemns anyone to an ill fate, but you have to believe in Him or you'll never see His powerful love.

      Everything in life happens for a reason. We need to look to our faith to "see" what those reasons are. Following a positive path, with faith love and kindness in your heart rarely ends in depravity.

      Beautifully written, Rahul, as always! I wonder how many comments your words will spark????

      rahul0324 ~ "I am honored that my piece prompted such words of wisdom My friend Mickey!"

      I very much appreciate your taking my comments as intended - sometimes I fear some folks here think we should only ever say "wonderful" or even "I agree" or keep quiet when we comment on another's hub - but to me, be sparked by another's thoughts to offer your own understanding of things is the greatest compliment you can give to them. But, I do sometimes fear such a response will simply be seen as confrontational or disagreeable - I risked that because your work here persuaded me to trust that you would see past that common impulse and recognize my true intent. Thank you.

      God calls us to 'examine if these things be so', He invites us to 'come, let us reason together' - Christianity is not even close to some manner of blind faith, were are not to assume but are to question . . . and when someone does question then if the questions don't spark discussion, even debate, it seems to me they must not have been very worthwhile questions.

      Besides sharing my own view with others as they question, I too question ~

      "What is it that you're screaming,

      So constant and so loud;

      And why am I all alone,

      Why isn't there a crowd?

      Are you calling to the others,

      Or is it only me;

      Are you telling me who I am,

      Or who I ought to be?

      Does this have to be a mystery,

      Must we work for every clue;

      Why can't you simply tell us,

      What it is that we must do?

      So we conjure up some answers,

      But our answers gender strife;

      For it's only as we surrender to your Spirit,

      That we know why we've been given life."

      . . . I hope everyone questions and hope that everyone comments on everyone else's questions. I think it was C.S.Lewis who said something like "My own eyes are not sufficient for me to see God, I must see Him through the eyes of all men".

      Hi Vellur! I just saw a movie today and there was a quote by Tommy Lee Jones that " We should never ask those questions whose answers which we ought not to seek"

      My poem is just an effort to show how brutal man has become... and how easily has been subdued by evil...

      No one can defy the gods of Karma and Life ... but sometimes questions do arise

Thank you for such shear kindness. It is greatly appreciated!

      The Temper of Questioning has been the light of mankind since the ages of Renaissance and it is this sole Temper which has led us to landmarks humankind only dreamed of accomplishing some time ago in history!

      I personally recommend that temper to linger over my work with each presence and each read.

      I am honored once again that you consider my question worth to be debated upon... for it is a speakers and writers dream to see discussions over his work... I smile from hear in respect of you and your words

      I called to a crowd.. to listen upon me

      But only you paid heed! I was noticed by thee

      You are not alone in temper, I stand by your side

      For as I speak from inside, I listen from your side

      I respect your identity and I wish you preserve it

      For I urge you to listen and question my each split

      For I am a speaker and must speak before I brood

      That is for I urge you to look deep within my mood

      Rahul, I see your strength. I know some of what you've experienced in your young life. Your faith in whatever it may be: youself, God.... has driven you to overcome. Your poetry is absolutely phenomenal! I don't know how many times I've used those words when describing your poetry.

      You are so amazing and I love the discourse you've got going on with MickeySr. He is a very spiritual person who speaks out loud about his faith and how that faith is key to overcoming difficulties. I urge you to read his hubs. He is governed by his soul. And I see that in you.

      I understand this poem to be a question you've asked yourself in healing and overcoming. Those who don't know you may not see that. Thank you for posing the question and the doubt, so others may see. We all ask the question at some point in our lives, but we have each been given the strength to overcome - that is if we have faith!

      Believing in a higher power does not exclude questions. Even Mother Theresa kept a journal (now published) that, in the face of so much suffering, she questioned God.

      God gave us the free agency which was the clear result of the war in heaven. Where that free agency breeds evil, it can then be righteously judged. Where that free agency breeds love and compassion, it can be righteously rewarded. What we observe, we may not understand, but one day we will. In the meantime, we only control our own free agency, for good or for ill.

      It's not easy to read those lines, but so true, sadly..we live in the world that is filled with evil, cruelty and...injustice. These kinds of messages should be frequently delivered on a larger scale to both those who commit such crimes, and those with power to deliver the verdicts. Then...maybe something would change for better...

      Its a rough reality to handle the barbarism of men, or injustice of mankind, the fact that these things happen in nature as well is besides the point. Like when a predator is in hot pursuit of his prey.

      I believe god holds no bounds on such thing of this world, but in the afterlife there must be a place for those who do outright wrong to a humans physical being on spite, so therefore that place must be considered hell to reside in for sure.

      Awesome job here Rahul, and I can see why so many folks have come to share this awesome writing as well. You are filled with such intensity (both sharing and writing), and drive to out root (reveal) the core of the human spirit, and that is what I sense in your poetry writings.

      Voted up bro!

      The words and the meaning is very beautiful; and yet, it is a hard concept, for many, to accept since the world is so wrapped around hatred and judging each other when we have no right to judge and bring justice onto one another. The only times when justice, by a man, should be served is if one has committed a crime against the law people agree and respect (such as stealing and theft) however, we are not the ones to judge who burns in hell or flies to heaven. Only when we die will we be given true judgment by whatever deity may be out there.

      Very well done, Rahul!

      Rahul is one of the kindest, intelligent, fluent, awesome people I've been honored to meet! May all of you share his words and get to know him. He's absolutely amazing, especially once you see the tremendous trials he has overcome. I call him my brother because he speaks to my soul.

      Love Ya, Brother!
