The Final Verdict

In the court room we all stood up to wait for jury's verdict, and when it came we were all surprise, the verdict took a few seconds before the celebration could sink in.

The court room

The final verdict made me cry,
Unable to recover from the hurt,
I hear the mockery of the enemy,
Compel my tears driven to new birth.

The final verdict took us all by surprise,
Transform my visage into acute pain,
Beneath plump veins throbbing heat arise,
Burning with injustice, like a torched flame.

Trembling on a remote candle stick,
To aguishly hear the judge stale voice,
Announce the final verdict,
In turning storm in melancholy rejoice.

My tongue clung to the roof of my mouth,
Chrysalises with the messenger of numbness,
The requiem arrow piercing thought,
Already sped into broken pieces of sadness.

Secretly venture my hearts grieving losses,
Faintly traveled in personal pursuit,
To revise moments in awful memories,
Of the day we heard the final verdict.

Gerry Legister,
You've given a wonderful poem on a different subject that is generally hard to think of for poetry.
