Biased justice

Human beings always act in haze
Biased are they in many a ways
Every act of theirs does amuse
To extremes range their views.

A mistake that causes dejection
The wrongdoer, immediately they chasten
Not listening to the excuse, penalty given is severe
Making the wrongdoer feel pierced with a spear.

The same committed by someone dear
Their thoughts becomes so unclear
And so forgiveness is what they feel
Is the very best way to heal.

Heal from what I often wonder
Their thoughts filling me with anger

We are left with no other option
But be deeply hurt by their actions

There is double standard in all things we do.This is a common human failing so nicely brought out in the well written poem.

Absolutely true... Your poem beautifully brings out a despicable nature inherent in humans. Well done!

Have a wonderful day!

Very nice poem. I get a doubt whether your talking about some incident from your personal life or about politicians and so on. In any case this poem is very apt.
