What is personal justice?
Do we confuse it with what is fair, what is right?
What we feel is deserved of us?
Is it the:
you don’t know what I’ve done
you don’t know what I’m capable of
you’ve never given me a chance
or is it the blanket statement.
The general consensus.
This is right and that is wrong and
this shouldn’t belong.
Nothing is fair. Nothing is just.
We create the rules as we go along and emotions get all
tangly, wiggly bits of emotional threads
caught and tied and frayed and
we make our judgements here in this cloud of
Where I have the right to say what is true just
as much as you do and
then we guide the rest of them
those too confused to make their minds up
those lacking the privilege to make those
It never ends up being just, justice
meant for everyone but decided by just one.
