JUSTICE - SOMEDAY

JUSTICE - SOMEDAY

For the precious little unborn souls - in the womb
But not given their chance to suck in the breath of life
To find their way through the dusty storms of experience
And to grow and blossom
Into the lovely beings they were meant to be

     .....Will there be Justice for them.....

For the families of people murdered - unjust destruction of life
Caused by those whose cruelty and selfishness knows no bounds
Waiting with empty hope for the peace they deserve
To see their loved ones avenged through a system
Set up to help those who caused so much hurt - the searing pain

     .....Where is the Justice for them.....

For the children caught up in the insanity of abuse
Their bodies and souls raped, their hearts starved for the love
And the affection that should be theirs - the wait
For the systems that are supposed to rescue them - and yet
They are returned to those who hurt them the most - and then they die

     .....Was there Justice for them.....

For the innumerable and wretched poor and needy of the Earth
Who are always with us - deliberately kept that way on purpose
By those whose greed has bled the Planet dry
With their hoarding of wealth, riches and unbounded excesses
Cold compassion - forcing the poor to help the poor

Ignoring the request of our Creator - To Share

     .....And Justice For All?
                                     .....Not Yet!
                                                     .....SOMEDAY.....
