30 Days for Climate Justice Day 30: We Will Not Be Silenced (A love letter to earth protectors)



We will not be silenced


We see dwindling orca families

And know

it’s past time to act

While they overturn



Forests are burning

and we have trouble taking in

the air we need

While they overturn



They Sneak pipelines 

On scared ground

Children go without water for



The weight of this sits heavy

stone laden arms

we try to raise

our fists

And we will not be silenced. 


We flood their phones take

To the streets

Put plants in the ground

and lift up

Earth protectors already

Turning these tides.


We act 

And push though

We never know if

It will be enough.

But we know we will not be silenced. 


We pour of ourselves

to protect this ground

not because

They are listening

But because

There is power

In not being silenced.
