The Law

A recent writing, I wrote this last night, loosely inspired by “Javert’s Suicide” from Les Miserables

THE LAW or DUALITY or HIM
The Law.
Binding, yet freeing.
The Law.
Binding, yet freeing.
Through him we learn of Justice and Mercy
Through him we learn of Power and Duty
Does he show, lead, or restrict, and tie?
Does he lift, free, or depress, and bind?
A dual nature- irreconcilable
Both darkness and light
Is it in him or us that the difference lies?
Does he or do we choose the day, or the night?
Are we all equal or stripped of individuality?
Can we demand equality, yet remain unique?
Does he feel sympathy?
Or does he simply wait to correct and critique?
A guideline to show us the way
A warning for where not to go
A restriction of the freedom we deserve
A kind voice gently saying no
Is that all?
Can He be summed up in words?
He is the Law
Subtle like the early chirping of the birds
The Law.
Binding, yet freeing.
The Law.
Binding, yet freeing.
