Dear Lady,

Beauty for all to behold,
Yet herself...

Tired of the weight of this stance,
Of beauty...

She stands for the love of right,
And good over evil...

In shoes without support,
Of in souls for right...

With breasts that will never suckle,
A child, just greedy man...

Her book written in a language,
For few to understand...

Trapped on a pedestal, tired and alone,
Unable to read her book of frail braille,
Her strenght leaves flat meaning...

She stands proud in her shroud,
And "prays" that she can continue to hide...

The man in black is the ruler and cares nothing of pride...

Truth can set you free?
Sure, the larger the check...
And, the freer you'll be!

Lady Liberty
I know well of what you so heartfully write. Lucie's identification of Lady Liberty is an acurate assessmant on a strengthening level, unfortunately those in black with gavels so often have respect for only green and suits.

Excellant write Robin. I did kind of get hung up on:
"In shoes without support,
Of in souls for right..."
in-soles, as in the inner portion of the unsupported shoe, but with the duality of she being a soul searching for right/justice. Spelled "in-soles" I think I wouldn't get hung up there, but I'd still get the picture.

A sad picture it is Robin, and one shared by too many.

Hang in there friend-
look for a pm from me sometime this weekend

best thoughts your way-

DearJustice/Lucie & Laura
there is much correlation to our Lady of Liberty, I did not mean for it to bash but,I knew in my heart there would be mixed meanings.
I have much love for this country....

actually,this poem would apply to both thoughts,I
could picture the statue in my mind from the movie Titanic...

My feelings gf fair law and justice are warranted
(warranted) could have used a different word...

Thanks Much,

Hi Elizabeth!...
thanks for your comments...this is a poem directed toward the corrution, kind of confused myself, but somehow it seemed to fit as well,
in souls...the more I read it the more it grew on me...and yes, if liberty and justice for all
were combined in this beautiful lady, this country just might pull lives together...
take care...Robin
