Judgement

Judgement is most harsh
When it’s fair
Capturing the truth

Blind she holds the scales
Cannot see
Who bends at her feet

If the balance tips
Favours one
Of the powerful

Honesty will fall
Bleed away
Till we’ve lost it all

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    Great poem Helen, so much wisdom and pertinence to current political goings-on. Hope you are doing well.

  2. Thanks so much Michael – and yes, I guess it is very apt in the current political climate! 🙂

  3. This one is as if you took a headline and created the poem. Well done, Helen.
