AUSCHWITZ / HUMAN

AUSCHWITZ

 

Some of us were children

Some were only babes

When mom and dad succumbed

To black and parade greys.

 

We didn’t know the reason

Didn’t know what was designed

And then our hearts collapsed

Under the weight of love demised.

 

Many numbered were the victims

Lost count when we lost sleep

Maybe survival instincts will liberate

What remains of our families?

 

Parents that we did adore

Footnotes of history

Tearfully we did endure, overcame

World War Insanity.

HUMAN

 

Am I human?

Am I the fury and the storm

An eternal shade of conflict

The rose’s many thorns?

 

Am I human?

Crying, crawling in the mud

A slave to poisons and passion

No resolve can overcome?

 

Am I human?

Something animal, full of lust

Chaotic struggling with desire

Known to self-destruct?

 

I am human but

I think I’d rather be like God

Existing outside all the pain

As eternal, spotless love.
