Who is justice? I would like to know,
Whoever she is, I could love her so
I could love her, though my race
So seldom looks upon her face

Everything you do in life will leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action because justice will definitely come your way.

In my head and around me said...

Whoever wrote that has to be a Nigerian living in todays times with today's politicians and resultant government.

But still, I have faith in the New President.

*sigh*
Justice has not been home in a while
her reluctance i understand
cos i sold her daughter CONSCIENCE to her nemesis GREED.

rethots said...

She's the only constant that makes whatever one does not be in vain.

@ atinuke- It IS true, yoruba girl.

@ kokolette- I know. We have plenty to think about.

@ babawilly- what if God thinks we should work it out with our own hands?

@ catwalq- you're good, catwalq. I like this.

@ rethots- we need her constancy in Nigeria...desperately.

hmm........this maybe so inappropriate here (lol) but this poem reminds me of my absolute favorite poem.

i want to die
while you ride me
into the night

which i imagine was adapted by another one by georgia johnson

I want to die while you love me,
While yet you hold me fair,
While laughter lies upon my lips
And lights are in my hair.

I want to die while you love me,
And bear to that still bed,
Your kisses, turbulent, unspent,
To warm me when I'm dead.
I want to die while you love me,
Oh, who would care to live
Till love has nothing more to ask
And nothing more to give!
I want to die while you love me
And never, never see
The glory of this perfect day
Grow dim or cease to be.

ok.....so that just turned out to be what i did not intend to write about but ah well...lol

kokolette said...
