Silence

What sayeth the wind,
When air moves no more?
What sayeth the waves,
When storms stay ashore?

What sayeth the forest,
When trees no longer grow?
What sayeth the glaciers,
When there is no more snow?

What sayeth the people,
Of mistakes they’ve made?
What sayeth the children
Of the price they will’ve paid?

What sayeth the Lord,
When pain is so abound?
What sayeth the world
When it can’t make a sound?

Why does everything
Have to be ok
For everybody?
Why is everyone offended

Even in a loving way
For someone once
Said it with malice
This logic that once is always
Fails to hold
I guess this is why
We all get so upset
The logic is gone.
