The Legacy Of Law - Part Two -


smeltering a soveriegnty sent forth from the center of 2 + 2
and branding beliefs with the benefits of interstellar iron,
smoke waving wakefully from flesh feeling fresh from a firefight with Freedom,
unlatching the lock of Liberty with endurance elegant & unabashed,
could Moses manackle my motivations with a burning bias,
would Augustus Caeser cruxify me for minting my own coin,
does the Magna Carta make men Subjects, represented labor,
do government classrooms train Citizens coyly
to kiss the whip of the wealthy, pledge to be collateral,
truth my Tribune, empathy my educator, ability the enabler,
decisions are for me to regret or applaud, keep your mind cuffs away,
I reserve the Right not to consent or comply with a jurisdiction outside of myself,
Right to Acquisition a promise in my purview, might the arbitraitor,

when unable to house the white fire of Spirit
I shall receive the roadway to the great Law of Consequence,
finding friendship in the Unity of immaterial community,
that campfire where sensativity to sadness stokes a heat of healing
an exodus from the conflict of passions,
an entry into natural oblivion, membership to complete comprehension -


J.A.B.

    Again, your astounding command of word use reaches heights that inspire me to reach a higher level in my own journey. This is truly a metaphoric masterpiece. I love every line, especially "does the Magna Carta make men Subjects, represented labor, do government classrooms train Citizens coyly" and "decisions are for me to regret or applaud, keep your mind cuffs away" ... so chilling to think that this is true on so many levels

    This is beyond interesting work, Justin. Everything is relevant, I like your opinion over this matter, I call it unfair law, in my own personal reality. Every line you have here&part1 is insightful. I like to think on my own laws and beliefs, in hopes I can accomplish on not breaking them, the truth is that if you can rise above by teaching others by good example on not breaking our own laws, then we stand a chance in practicing good stewardship over people's talents by appropriate delegation. I used to wonder why consequences always follow behind the law. Now I know! PS~ I love the power in which you stand for. Never stand outside the jurisdiction of one's self. Well I got off base, ha but felt like expressing my first thought~ Always~ Linda

    Very deep, Justin. I am happy to hear you are writing or planning on writing a book...words can have so much impact. Reading this out loud, even more impact ..I can tell your heart is deep in your work and your message rings with so much truth. Laws will always be bent and broken if they are meant for controlling and dictating...

    Thanks so much for the awesome remarks Laura! When we force people to cooperate with the threat of violence, prison, or even death nobody gains my friend - we need to ask ourselves, whose making the 'laws' in the first place, and why are they enforced without consent and often time with violence & material injury - J.A.B. %

    And in some ways, I think people should stand up if they feel the law is unjust or against their beliefs. "I reserve the Right not to consent or comply with a jurisdiction outside of myself," That line is great. It seems you have put down your foot and have shown to us all where you stand. That's a great spirit!

    ...there are laws, however meant to strengthen and build each other. Unfortunately humanity may not easily grasp those laws... but individually I am sure we can learn to distinguish from right to wrong, establishing our own way of living according to that judgement... I just think people simply don't like to be told what to do...anyhow, you've got me thinking about quite a lot with this one. Thanks, Justin. You take care and keep up the incredible work. With much respect, Laura

    Your respect is a powerful gift Laura, thank you - I opine that our liberty needs to be anchored in strength, not by complying subsequent to intimidation - Jurisdiction is at the root of the situation - thanks for sharing your intelligent analysis - J.A.B. %

    I am tired of people attempting to rudely, or even violently imposing their values, "laws", and will upon others - we all should consider the value of eschewing authority that is conflict with our strengths & potential - we obey to easily in my opinion - true society, and companionship is partnership, not dictatorship - J.A.B. %
