It took a whole lot of tears
To nurture this untamed nation.
Justice in America
Is not without its' troubling years
There are times when unjust laws
Causes a river of tears.
Justice in America sometimes
By its mire presence is made blind;
By those who have the awesome duty
Of preserving justice for all times.
Justice in America is not always just-
When deeds of injustice paint justice unkind
But think not with your heart that justice in
America will completely disappear,
Because some American hearts get broken
And some Americans are charged
At the hands of injustice with crying a river of tears.
For the wisdom of justice is in knowing
That justice is made wiser
In the river of tears
That Americans have shed to keep
Justice afloat-throughout the unjust years.
