    I saw blood
    Face broken, bones shattered
    Teeth plucked out, nails broken
    His skin swollen, his dignity stolen
    I saw it, I saw it all and I will not remain silent again!

    I saw fear
    Hands shaking, hair falling
    Feet trembling like leaves dropping
    Lips stuttering, tongue twisting
    I saw it, I saw it all and I will not remain silent again!

    I saw evil
    Voices shouting, sometimes whispering
    Hands carrying a person dying
    Still gripping, blood dripping
    I saw it, I saw it all and I will not remain silent again!

    I saw courage
    The men leaving, the man dying
    Alone struggling, and then standing
    His body anguishing, in darkness crying
    I saw it, I saw it all and I will not remain silent again!

    I saw a dream
    Hope rising, fear departing
    Like fog vanishing like smoke lifting
    And he was walking, his steps counting
    I saw it, I saw it all and I will not remain silent again!

    I saw change
    People screaming, sound ringing
    The forest refusing, to take a man dying
    The road whispering, promising healing
    I saw it, I saw it all, and I will not remain silent again!

    I am a witness of change
    I am a defender of dignity
    I am a guardian of truth
    I am a protector of my brother
    You don't know me; I know you
    You don't care for me; I do for you
    You don't even remember me, I always remember you
    I am that tree that
    SAW IT ALL!
    And I refused to remain silent today.

    Job 14:7a "For there is hope for a tree, If they thought it is cut down, it has sprouted again Genesis 2:9 for Jehovah God causeth to sprout from the ground every tree desirable for appearance, and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil; Job 14:7b And that the tender branch of it will not cease. Now Isaiah 4:2 In these days there shall be a sprout of Jehovah for beauty and glory, and the fruit of the earth for excellency and for ornament for those that are escaped of Tanzania. Luke 21:30 when they already sprout, ye know of your own selves, on looking at them, that already the summer is near!

    Proverbs 23:5 Why do you set your eyes on that which is not? For it certainly sprouts wings like an eagle and flies in the sky.

    Says the Lord of host the mighty one of Tanzania!
