Silent Witness

injustice brings pain

healing with silent witness

peacemakers of love

~

peace, witness

This poem is dedicated to the peaceful silence that holds everything together. I believe protest, politics, and communication would all benefit from more peaceful approaches. Being a peaceful witness helps hold a space for love, connection, and solutions to emerge. Angry protesting has never resonated with me. I’m a peacemaker at heart, who is heartened to see this idea taking roots in peaceful protests around the world. Within days of seeing the image above, Ali at Flashlight Batteries shared her poem called Finding Fault to witness for peace and justice.

May we be loving, peaceful witnesses to injustice, holding a space for love and healing to occur. This is an invitation to share poems that witness; advocating and standing for equity, justice, and peace. #poemsofwitness

Peace out, BradΒ

  2. Thanks for posting Brad. Your post comes at a time when I am being reminded ‘silence is golden’. How powerful these protesters are by exercising inner strength and resisting the urge to succumb to their base lower nature at a time of intense oppression! They inspire us all to exercise restraint and draw upon our greater inner strength and power. NamasteπŸ™πŸ½
