Haiku, Just Haiku

Just one thing fails me
Whatever that one thing is
One can't be enough

I just want to be
objectively fairminded
I want to be just

Just exactly that
absolutely, totally
just thoroughly just

Just when it seems that
you can't possibly succeed
try just one more time

Everything just is:
healthy, sick, married, alone
Thank G-d for your life

I like the way you switched the order in the first and last lines. Very clever.

Just will become joust
by adding a letter. Oh!
Sometimes more is less.

Just will become jest
by changing a letter. Eee!
Just ain't that funny.

Love how you used the prompt twice in many of the haiku - added meaning and rhythm for me.

forms of just justly

Life's not a game, says my mom.
I just wanna read.
