ODE TO THE GREATEST JUDGE

By Shedrack Akor 5 months ago

You have never failed to convict the guilty

Those who do wrong ever escape thy chastening whips

Thou visits the reprobate mind

And the body cannot but show remorse

 

You are present in the heart of all who draw breath

With you, there are no exceptions

Thou reprimands without exemptions

With truth in hand, thou corrects the unjust

 

You comfort the just in times of tribulation

With you, the innocent has hope

Thou art a kin to peace of mind

And the guilty is never at ease with thee

 

Who then is this great judge?

Impervious to corruption

Immune to the influence and affluence of social status

And unyielding to to human nature

 

Thy name is Conscience

That inner still but resolute voice

When thou speaks

Even the heart carved out of stone listens
