JUST CAUSE

JUST CAUSE Without cause, teachers, classmates, and neighborhood kids mocked at my pitiful station of poorness and entrenchment in painful shyness, calling me dreadful names that chipped away at my soul. At my first job as a hairstylist they sentenced me to their delusions of what this occupation represented, it was because of this evil prejudice, I suffered and quit. Then again, as a legal secretary they postulated I was too attractive to be so highly skilled, but it was my stanch refusal to glorify the lawyers that led to many departures. In actuality, my New York intonation, look, and demeanor unjustly characterized me. All these outward inferences never let you know the slightest bit of about me. I have respectfully pleaded my case, demonstrated good faith, and absolute innocence. Though these nonsensical matters are no longer a subject they continue to hold it against me. Their verdicts were biased with no standard of proof, so my freedom and sovereignty were non-existent without any relief in sight. Unfailingly, I’ve always held God’s beings in the highest regard, causing perpetual sadness and disappointment. Thus, I remain a hopeless victim, from those who sought to harm me for No Just Cause. I’ve been a pro se petitioner in all matters of my life. Nevertheless, they implacably refuse to acquit me of these wholly false and distorted allegations. Today, I have just cause to be wary of their perverse ideas, dishonesty and ill-conceived standards. As I barely stand, trying to keep my head up, they continue to hold me in unqualified contempt. Regardless, the childhood trauma and tragic incidents that left irreversible damage, I cry, a body wracked in pain and disrepair, nevertheless, they persist in attempts to dismiss the documented facts. Because, I was intensely, persecuted for so many decades and always found to be guiltless but merely detrimentally naïve, it is my contention that these erroneous incriminations will never cease. Still, society has handed me down a life sentence of injustice, bias and prevarication with respect to all factors of my life. I’ve been caused irreparable harm by their unwarranted ever damaging criticisms. Although, I remain imprisoned by irrationally obstinate hypocrites, I have uncompromising trust that on the Final Judgment Day GOD will show His most Powerful Exoneration towards me as I’ve shown mercy to all others.

WoW! Diana, People can dislike you for no reason at all. I know what's it's like to be ridiculed and mistreated. I hope and that things turn around for you. And that you find peace and that you experience that life-changing love from the father. Your last stanza sums up your poem very well. I'm adding this to my fav collection. Have a nice day-Alexis

Dear Diane, I am so sorry life has been unkind. I've suffered unkindness also. Here's what I think: put all that sadness in a box and store it where it's hard to reach. Don't keep taking it out and looking at it because it can make you ill. Try to move forward each day in sunlight. Tell yourself those memories won't dray you down. Hugs, Ann

Dear Diane, My heart goes out to you. Life can be hard and people can be cruel and insensitive. I know! Send out love to those who trespassed against you, for they are the one's who are truly lost in spirit and soul. Keep writing and hold your head up high. Hugs from me to you.

Oh this wrinkled web we weave. I am only glad you have endured so much unnecessary duress, Like Coal in the soil beneath of us some of us to possess the ability to be diamonds. Then those who injured will complain about the shine. This is a well articulated writing a google reminder, an alarm clock bell as to how cruel we can be. But it also reminds us that the awesome will always endure. Your final line says it better..God will judge us all and some will get roses and others will get thorns.

I believe you have taken on a spiritual life task which is self perpetuating as you traverse through stages of your life. You are a mirror whereby the deeds of others reflect and deflect showing how, as once Jesus was insulted, harmed and all under sufferance, he came amongst us to raise the spirituality within us to bear whatever we wrought to enable mankind to see their wrongdoings was only harming themselves. You are the enlightenment of love and faith which no one can extinguish. Meditate

Job comes to mind as I read this piece. This is a sad state of affairs. Unfortunately people can be cruel. I hope you find a place beyond judgment where people appreciate you for who you are. Blessings Rick.

Diane, An interesting poem for one with an interesting life. Have you heard Leonard Cohen's song? 'Forget your perfect offering. ~~ There is a crack, a crack, in everything. ~~ That’s how the light gets in.' A song of forgiveness perhaps. -Richard
