This Light Of Justice
Do not look back, there is only darkness-
Look forward, toward the distant light.
A look back only brings anger and bitterness,
So, I reject the thought with all my might,
In favor of faith in a future not yet known.
Flashes of this darknesscreep into my mind,
Where I am always heart-broken and all alone-
A lonely, freightened man left behind
By a system that espouses justice, yet does not exist.
I so very much crave this future's luminescence,
Yet, the pain of my past's darkness continues to persist.
Our Forefathers so beautifully captured its essence,
But its guardians have allowed it to wither;
Now, sadly, this light of justice shines not, hither!
