Seeing through the armor of a hardened people, while one is spared to see the truth.
The gavel smashes down and breaks
Its remnants fall
To the ground
To the ground.

Eyes look on, both scared and phased
Each eyelash points
To the ground
To the ground.


She enters in just ‘fore the lies
Eyes look back;
Gavel cries;
Through shattered screams of ego lust
She reveals truth
And leads to trust.


Truth is held ‘round hardened tongue
Each movement trained
To the sound
Of the ground.

The gavel smiles, a life renewed
To paint her canvas
By the Proud
To the ground.


He enters there -- so bare within
To bare with them
The careless grins
That dance across fires of fate --
And throws the canvas they have made
To the ground.

She stands staring, admiring smoke
In mirrors cloaked,
‘round eyes of fear.

Looking up from his own action, jaded
Stolen out from passion, fated
To the sound
To the sound.


His heart is torn ‘tween buried hatred
To love his own
And watch them turn
Like gears inside the courtroom,
Silenced.

She sees and dances through its violence.

He breathes, and sees the broken pieces -
Gavel gripped
Then dropped beneath him.
Outside soldier inside retreated.
His hand is open
His strike defeated.
His mite is meted

As she smiles,
He knows no reason.

As she smiles,
He holds no treason.

As she smiles.

He grows beyond his weakened
Spirit lifted by the sound.

She settles near on jury bench
The eyes are closed within the trench
He lays his verdict papers down
And rests beside her while
Judgement falls

To the ground.
