I am Justice
I am fair treatment of everyone
Regardless of race, religion, culture, class, gender, or sexual orientation
I exist where all sides are heard.
I am not retribution but accountability.
There is no loser or winner,
Only liberation for both oppressed and oppressor.
I am a shift in power relations.
Sometimes, good people want punishment
For those who harm loved ones;
This is not Justice. This is not me.
We have to get over our punitive response to Justice.
Maybe I am about Karma...
What goes around comes around.
I embody Wisdom and Compassion.
I, Justice, am complex.
People fear me:
Those in power are scared of losing it;
Others are afraid because they have been taught to fear
By ignorance and indoctrination.
But even I am left with many questions:
Who decides what is Just?
Can violence serve my cause?
(Maybe that is the difference between Justice and justification...)
Can there be Justice without Peace?
Is there a common ground
Where I can live
Without the oppressed and poor just compromising their rights away?
