Some believe that Justice must be blind---
Eyes covered from all a glimpse could find.
If true, I'd like to give her a piece of my mind
For every person I have seen tears blind.
I would rather Compassion with a strong arm find
Ready to seek the mourning to hold and bind.
Our own world with Justice I would leave behind—
Strip away tear stained rocks which once shined.
Compassion take their grief to the millstone to grind—
Rob away their sorrows far from heart and mind.

Liked the strong rhyme in this Ghazal Robert. Thanks for sharing! I am a Creative Life Coach and have a poetry blog in case you have time to read? http://www.peacockpoetryblog.wordpress.com and I am also on Instagram as #coachingcreatively – let’s follow each other if you use this medium? You can also find me on Facebook under Sam Allen wearing a bright red and orange hat! Have a good day?
Very cool. I will check out your blog a bit later. Today’s a bit of a busy day! Thanks for the compliment. I appreciate it.
