Trust In Love – James Gallagher

silent witness

silent witness




silent witness

like this tree


to the endless rape

of our sky

our lands and seas




I won’t stay silent

I will speak out

I will cry out over the scream of the bulldozer

over the howl of the chain saw

over the deafening silence of the impotent law


I will call out to the end of my days

I will cry out against all the damage done

all the poison spilt

all the forests fallen

all the life


gone and never considered

never revisited

never saved



I will speak out all the days of my life


and some day in the silence of a deep wood


I will sleep in the heart of things green and flourishing

at peace


Stay up to date!
