Justice



Justice doesn’t mean
Wearing a blindfold
Over one’s eyes;
Because, fairness
Necessitates scrutinizing
Every known
And hidden crevice–
Creating decisions based
On what actually occurs
To all those involved,
Even to the ones
One does not like;
For, what happens, then,
When the assigned jurist
Opts to be purblind?
Then, he cannot perceive
The abject situation,
Gaping back at him,
Demanding
To be acknowledged
And understood.
Real justice
Shouldn’t be blind.
