Poetry: In Search Of Justice!

Representational image

In search of Justice: I saw the fear in her voice, I saw the fear in her eyes, I saw the fear in her tears, I saw the fear in her walk, I saw the fear in her words, I saw the fear in her every breath, actually, I find in her fear that she had lost anyone before and now she was full of fear of losing her loved ones.

She is silent, that doesn’t mean she is impotent.

Justice is blind,

Justice is for elites,

Justice is money,

Justice is what we are seeking.

Now,

She is courageous,

She is a fighter,

She is his own skies and birds.

Dear Justice,

Don’t call her weak,

Call her fearless,

She can die for Justice and can kill injustice.

She is the lonely warrior that can defeat criminals.

She is his own Justice,

She is his own supporter,

She is an ocean,

She is a jewel,

She is a fire that makes her unique.

She is strong as the roots of the strong tree,

No wind can beat her.

In search of Justice, she learnt how to give voice to voiceless.
