If a man bears no weapon

He should not be beat down or shot

He will pay for his crimes as he faces the law

No one man or group of men

Charged with his capture

Need choose to harm him

Only a court of law can pass sentence upon him

For his wrong doing

If you take the law into your own hands or

Use excessive force

Then you too become the hunted

Maybe even more so than the one you hunt


A Desperate Cry for Justice©

angels right side

Warm tears streamed down my dismayed cheeks

Unsure of what found me here in this moment

I stand puzzled

Uncertain about what steps I should take

Overwhelmed with sadness

Angry at the idea of loss

Sickened by the ignorance among the uncaring

Burdened by all that must be done

Weakened by the weight of the world

But strengthened by self-determination to see that justice is done

Ready to take back what was lost to so many

It’s time to take a stand and let the wrongdoers know

That all eyes are now on them

No longer will they hide in the shadows

As their victims try to find their eternal resting place

We will stand as one to fight for justice

So that all our tears can once again be turned into joy
