Justice, Peace, Truth, Love

Justice, Peace, Truth, Love


For justice, truth and peace to flow

First love; has fruit to bear

United should become all four

And practiced everywhere


True justice cannot stand alone

While needing truth and peace

When love becomes the corner stone

Their fruit will never cease


Let truth be drank as sweet old wine

Let love serve not in vane

Mix justice well with peace divine

And let perfection reign


Without love justice is nought

Peace without truth’s a lie

Until the world this fact is taught

Condemned in hate she’ll die


To facts of life she must be wise

Her children need to see

Till love opens world selfish eyes

Salvation cannot be


When truth we seek and understand

When love becomes one’s root

When peace overflows the land

Justice will bear sweet fruit


Let peace’s wisdom come to rule

Knowledge, embrace the heart

Let love become our daily tool

Let justice play her part      


Let candour and fairness dwell as guide

Integrity, wear a crown

Impartiality reign inside

With love as wedding gown.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
