Love and Justice

(Found in a notebook from over two years ago. The theme: ‘Justice and Love’)

Why can't I love him?

I'll tell you why:

That 'justice' keeps us apart,

Those rules separate us so far,

And life brings a heavy path.


Why is it not fair?

They tell you what to do,

And who to love;

My heart is torn: rules or love,

So what to do?


Why can’t I love you?

Can we tell love

And justice to be one?

Just for once

I wish things went my way.


Why is there choice?

Everything should be true;

But I tell you now:

When has the course of love

Ever ran so smooth?

The End
