Revenge is the creature of a polluted world
He is an evil beast who cowers to the crowd
He is the crimson eyes of the persecuted,
and the bitter souls of the victims

Revenge is the ugly brother of justice
He torments his prey,
and tries to justify his crimes
in the name of his brother

Do not be deceived-
Revenge is an element of the weak
Forgiveness, the humble sister to justice
She is the attribute of the strong

Hey there! Sorry I took so long to get to reading your work.. I have been super busy, my grandpa is here visiting. Anyways, I really like this poem. For the most part, people like revenge. I liked seeing a different perspective on it. I thought the simplicity was nice, you were able to get everything you wanted to say said in only three small stanzas. That can be hard to do. I liked the ending, it gave a sense of hope. Overall, nice job!
