loureedraven3Oh justice
you queer creature
when did it become
permissible
to be so clouded?
if I were a storm
I’d gather your secrets
and rub them clear
from obscured tempest
capturing land with fists of murder
Oh justice
they ask me
what I want for my future
it’s not me I am concerned for
but the child who is let-down
before he begins
pain the innocent suffer
just for resisting easier path
sin is the great reaper
so many follow and worship
it becomes hard to see clearly
what is right anymore
oh justice
I would leave this world now
my last breath
if you could grant a restoration
put order back
arrange the books on the shelf
so people will come and read
truth may be dusty
but she is sorely
in need

  1. You write so well and this could be the lamentation of every person who has ever lived. The trials and suffering may not have been the exact same but who’s to measure the depth of anyone’s heartaches. Though life is hard, undeniably hard, everything, even Satan, is under the authority of Christ Jesus, and through Him we are promised redemption and restoration if not here in this fallen world then in the next. It was man who made the choice to open the world to evil’s ways. Nevertheless, our of God’s love, Jesus came to reclaim us for our Father. Meanwhile not all that we encounter here is dark and hurtful and lacking. Sadly the eye sees and the heart feels more intensely what goes wrong in life more than it does what goes well and right. But hope is always the bearer of light and promise. Love and hugs, Natalie ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

    1. Wow to say this could be the lamentation of every person who has ever lived is really high praise indeed and that meant so much to me! Thank you Natalie! As for restoration I do hope it will come in some form because sometimes it seems the world is the very opposite of how it should be. Love is definitely the answer. And mercy. Many people forget the value of mercy. xo Hope is all we have xo
