Justice rolls on
she is not rocked.
She is like a river
and flows over
even the rocks of despair
Righteousness streams past
the boulders of brash bombast
to whirl in eddies of empathy
with those who,
are bewildered by silent prophets.
Water cannot be stopped.
Water bubbles up from deep wells
It is a gift.
But water as justice and righteousness cannot be tasted by all
even though it is offered to all.
Some have mouths so full
of sound and fury
there is no room for water
To those, the one who offers an eternal supply says:
“I will spit you out of my mouth.”
Amos 5:24 But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
