Contradicting Justice

The greatest gift gave none—none
Contradicting considered contemplation

Of acting as an attribute above all,
Only once to fail its call, to falter and fall
When Justice dies, disperses, and departs
Every time Christ’s cost enters a heart.

The un-entered scream die, die!
We hate you! Crucify, crucify!
Bring the nails, bring the bones
Bring the blood, bring the moans
A hypocrite, a lie is their declare
While the accusers stand accused fair

But He, He requires death
For only our on-its-own breath
Indeed, not grieve not bless
He yells sin severs holiness
Hell for all, Hell for all
Helpless humans look up small

Ugh, father… forgive they know
Not what they do or what they owe
My will is to do the will of my father
No matter what occur or I prefer
It is finished, it is finished sings the victory
The cry of the Christ who brings us glory

Who some said sinner
Some said winner
Some said savior
Some just ignore
Some say justice was served
But we did not get what we deserve

this reminds me of Luke 23:24, " Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing"
