Have you ever wondered about JUSTICE? What does it really mean? I think that JUSTICE means different things to different people. To some people - JUSTICE is just a form of vengeance or maybe revenge. To others it's a way of consolation, to ease their mind and their pain. It has been said , that JUSTICE is blind. I think they are right, because JUSTICE can't see and sometimes the real criminals go free. When a crime gets commited and a person gets convicted, they get punished with prison time,or the death penalty. People say that JUSTICE was done. Sometimes years later, they find out that the wrong person was convicted. Do you think - that was JUSTICE? If a person is doing time, that person has a chance to go free one day, but if that person was executed, he or she will never come back. Maybe it's time to take off the blindfold so JUSTICE can see. Not everybody is inocent, but I think that more lives could be saved if only JUSTICE could see...

    Yes, I had it right when I guessed the first time it was for the SErious contest. I think when I first saw this, you had not put which contest it was for. So happy to see it made the winners' list. Congratulations.

    Congratulations on your placement in the contest, Lucilla. Truly an insightful write. Justice is indeed blind, not to mention corrupt. You may want to check out my poem "Poetic Justice" submitted in two parts because of its length. Well done, my friend. :)

    It is sad that some are convicted who are not guilty but Justice must keep trying. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce

    Yes, some truth that you have penned..Conviction of the wrong person does happen..If you were to visit some prisons, you would find that most all the inmates say that they were unjustly convicted..Why do you suppose they say that?..Enjoyed reading your work this eve..Someday the righteous judge will judge and issue out the punishment that is due for those who have not truly repented of their wrong...Sara
