Poem

So here is a poem about the Holocaust I wrote a long time ago, I think in high school? Anyways, at least it's something.


Fly


Fly Jews, Fly
get away from this place,
you are a nationality and religion,
persecuted

through fire,
through hell

Auschwitz,
Bergen-Belsen,
Warsaw Ghetto

blue star,
David,
white band

you could say forgotten,
but that is a wish,
targets are not forgotten

beaten,
shot,
burned,
emaciated,
destroyed

smite off the face of the earth
by god?
no

by ourselves

there is no difference,
humans are humans,
and we destroy each other

so fly,
fly away people,
true of heart,
fly

and live.
