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?

When the dust settled
And all the doubters emerged
Only the truth remained
Of which they thought the most absurd
So they walked away
Back to their sheltered houses
Hoping beyond hope
That the next time they came out
The science would be gone
And their truth would hold true
