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..... Written By: Neva Romaine 8/28/2015 (Original Post for "What is Your Form of Justice"-9/17/15)

Just now I have gone thru this poem.The simplest question is asked in your poem but toughest to answer. Neva, I also feel exactly in the same way as you feel., but have no idea when where or how justice is done!Is it really done ?

Hey Anisha, thank you for finding a moment to visit with me and for your gracious comments and insight on my poem. It is sad and we don't know the when, where or how; but I do know that Justice will be done because our Heavenly Father said so - and I believe Him. It is the wait that is so hard to bear. Be Blessed, Neva

Oh my goodness (on what you replied to me) Now THERE is a miscarriage of justice!! Be sure to enter this one in one of the Screwed contests of Rob's, or in one of the contests Constance does . Oh, it looks like it is entered into Constance's already. Good luck to you. I bet she will like it.

Neva, This poem of yours says it all. I was stumped, as to why you didn't place in the "Justice" contest. Must have been an oversight. You should enter it in a "screwed" or second chance contest so more people will read it. It is an important commentary on timely subjects. Hugs. Janece
