Inheritance

Despair follows in the faltering footsteps of justice. Weary, justice is, As the demanding eons pursue her - Weighing heavily and perpetually upon her scales - tipped Reaching the degradation of Hell set upon her, by Man. The death of justice bears down upon the child. Blind the child is, as the Book of Life, yellow with age crumbles to dust back to the Earth as a dirge of sound echoes through a cavern of time lost ideals set upon child by Man Life enters life - tiny fingers reach out to grasp the breast of nurtured warmth and love pours forth from the Milk of Life. The hand grows - strong arms hold the weapon of war against his brother the crack of death - swiftly bounds the hunter seeds of hate set upon the Earth by Man

I like how this describes for me both the physical and the spiritual of mankind and how our own sin caused the destruction that goes on in life. The is very introspective and thought provoking. Very nice! I definitely think it's fitting that your poem was featured.
