Justification Nation

Updated on May 18, 2018

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

Justification Nation

What is our destination

Where lies our true adulation

What can't we justify

Can this Nation no longer cry

If all eyes were to be fixed upon you...

which subjects would you not broach; categorize as off-limits, label as taboo

With each new day, a broader turning away from our 'original Founder and Framer' Father God, our Lord

What is meant by the words which were spoken, "Live by the Sword, die by the Sword"

When is enough.....enough

When will there be an Awakening

What will it take for this once Godly Nation to do

the things we know, in our heart, we are supposed to do

Are yet to be born babies really babies or are they just matter

described my entire life, Justified... as, the latter

Otherwise, within the light of each new day, how could we show our face

The past can't be undone, but we can get passed, a national disgrace

Life has been devalued, humans kill humans, we see images every day

It's blamed on this, it's blamed on that, but it cannot be, blamed away

Christians and Jews are not even seen as people, in some lands far away,

just in the way obstacles, praying incessantly, Satan stay away another day

Here in this land, the meaning of things change, and no one says a word

What's good is bad and bad is good and an outcry seldom, if ever, heard

We turn our backs on many, we repeat all the lies and we fall short in so many ways

I wonder...do you wonder like me, just how numbered are our days?

        Yes your comment came through with the Inspector Clouseau picture, as I call it. That has happened to me, if you're not signed into HP, you appear as a guest user.

        So thank you twice

        for your very nice

        comment.

        I do not write a lot of poetry, but it comes from somewhere within

        every now and then

        on a whim. :-)

        I don't know if my last comment got through, Abwilliams, my laptop went strange for a second. I wrote that you used language beautifully and your thoughts were expressive and clear. Excellent use of rhyme and meter, my friend. I didn't know a poet dwells within you as well as a powerful writer of our country's current situation.

        Wonderful work, while at the same time, sad, as Pop noted.

        Sincerely,

        Tim

        I didn't know a poet dwells within you, dear Abwilliams. Excellent use of language and expressive thoughts, although frightening as they are.

        We do try to justify instead of solving our issues. It's sad as Pop noted, but we can keep our days from ending because people like you have a determined soul.

        Thank you for this very good work of poetry.

        Pleasantly surprised,

        Sincerely,

        Tim

        Pop, I know we all ache seeing what people are capable of doing...to other people.

        This piece is sad, compelling and achingly true.
