The Poor &Amp; Just - Poem by Dan M. Jones

In his truth and for his truth
a just man will be blamed, a
poor man shall be slain, for
it has not changed -- a poor
man will be blamed, a just man
shall be slain.
His flesh shall lie undercover
beneath the face of an undiscovered grave. yet the sun shines anew
light unto his eyes he sees
another day --
Where is beyond this place
Beyond the scripture of his heart
its cover...the testimony of
His soul its face -- the lace of
eternity beyond this?
A place where God is touching
him when he sleeps and when he weeps.
Where is beyond this place
the lace of eternity, beyond this place?
