Without Intent

There’s always someone pulling the strings
there’s a big presence in the sky
or in your heart
or in your mind
someone’s making the choice.

Is it god?
Is it you?
Is it your parents?
Is it the world?
Is it culture?
Is it a mean person?
Is it the devil?

Someone’s making the choice.

How do you know
if it’s the devil

You don’t.

You step out onto the plank
with the best intent in your heart
and you see what happens.

And with the same intent
you judge what happens
evaluate what happens
check your intent

And make another choice.

There are those that say
intent doesn’t matter…
they are the ones who will stand by
while the devil makes them happy
on the way to hell.

Intent matters if you think you’re powerful
if you want to be powerful
if you want to be kind
if you want to be a real person,
rather than a shadow.

Intent matters, if you do not want
to be a shadow.

Justice and intent are intertwined
to have true Justice
the person who creates damaging things
must have an opportunity
to recognize
and make right.

Without intent – there is no justice.
only punishment.
