Silent witness

Faced with horror
beyond my reckoning,
yet possible within
the imagination and execution
of others, I stand
silent.

Easy words and quick answers
do not pass my lips;
no facile explanations offered;
yet never do I turn
away.

With battered heart and tear-filled eyes,
with bruised soul and deep sighs,
I watch and listen
as I grieve and ache – I bear
witness.
