If We Do Nothing

If We Do Nothing
It's the muted sounds of the tortured,
It's the whispers of the living dead,
It’s waiting for death to take his turn,
It’s the fires of hell, waiting to be fed,
If we do nothing,
Staring speechless at the ongoing spectacle,
Sleeping well while others dream of horror,
Forgetting warnings from the oracle,
Ignoring aide from the restorer,
If we do nothing,
A silent scream frozen on a child's face,
A crime committed and we abetted,
The perpetrator gone without a trace,
An agreement made while we fretted,
If we did nothing,
Light will not penetrate the deepest darkness,
Love will not find a path to a wounded heart,
There will be no way the wrongs to redress,
There will be no way for a brand new start,
If we do nothing.


  1. Ah, yes ... the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for a good man to do nothing.

  2. and so true it is. Your writing is all beautiful, I enjoy reading it very much, Thank you!
