Will Justice Come?


In light of current events I post this poem I wrote many years ago; a forthcoming ebook "Poems For The Journey"

Will Justice Come?
Isaiah 32:1-8

A man in ragged clothes is in a corner standing
Begging for money for a piece of bread
Another comes out of a restaurant laughing
Passing by him; he has been well fed

A woman sobs seating in her living room
Bruises on her body, her nose bleeding
A man singing out of tune
Feeling brave after the beating

A child wakes up trembling
Begging the man she loves not to hurt her
The abuse she has been remembering
If only she could say it louder

A young man taken into custody
The coroners has identified the bodies
It all happened as a rhapsody
In a cell he will have new buddies

A woman looks out her window
Wishing tomorrow she’ll have a better mood
Lonely and sad as a widow
A year has passed and there she has stood

Physically and emotionally drained
An old man walks through the door
He’s been fired for the job he was trained
He is too old to serve any more

A young mother is counting her pennies
Hoping to have enough money
To buy her children some tennis
Where is the man that called her honey?

This is the world where we live today
Injustice is around every corner
Will justice come some day?
Will it ever be better?

Look up and pray to the King
He’s coming to reign in righteousness
There will be justice for all human beings
Will you be ready to face his Holiness?
