You are either there and you bear witness
Or you are gone and you miss it.
And if you do witness it, use your voice
Tell others. Who else will?
If you are gone, then when you do hear it
Don’t brush it off as a lie, a misunderstanding.
Because there is another who was there
And they didn’t just witness it
They lived it.
And it will never go away.
It will live forever in the mind’s eye
No matter how it is taken by others.
And they cannot yet tell. Not just yet.
So who else will? Who else can?
