Undeserved Torture


     As I glare at what appears in front of me,

     I can't believe what I see.

     Scared, battered, and torn are we.

     Hitler and us are opposite beings that just don't agree.


    I spy many watchers, but to be willing to stand up for what's right are none.

   My eyes swell with burning hot tears as our clasped hands drift away becoming one.

  As of this moment, my heart now weighs a ton.

  The only food source that I have eaten in weeks is a bun.

 The only one that knows where my mom has gone is God.

 Come to think of it, I have no trace to my brother Todd.

 Suddenly I knew what was coming as my enemy's head drilled me a satisfying nod.

 This is all so very odd!

The slicing numb feeling in my body is caused by a knife.

It's just moments away until the sharp blade ends my life.

As I breathe my last breath I wonder why,

We are the ones to die.

This is the question that continues to have an unknown reply.



Author's Notes:
This is a poem about a day in the life of the Jews when they went through the holocaust back when Hitler was in power. I was studying it all in english class and at the end of our unit, we had to write a poem. This is a young boys perspective of it all and him and his mom got seperated from eachother and he ended up getting tortured real quick. I hope you enjoy!

This is a great write, you can really feel the power of their emotions in your words.
I especially like "As I breathe my last breath I wonder why, we are the ones to die. This is the question that continues to have an unknown reply."
Awesome way to end it.

Excellent write, a time in history that will never be forgotten, yet still persists in the world today and still nobody says anything. Joe

I don't think 'undeservable' is a word.
Other than that, good.
