The Shape of Justice

Justice comes in many shapes
Some familiar, some obscure
A star-shaped badge
Pinned to a uniform,
A gavel and a robe
The camouflage
Of military fatigues
These we all recognize

But what about those other things
Less familiar, more obscure
Arms wrapped around a stranger
Caring for someone
You don’t know
Holding a hand with compassion
Or letting honest emotions flow

The list is not
Complete by any means
Nor is a lot of it about justice
But it describes just us
Reaching out person to person
This is just the shape of us
