If your heart
Is made of stone,
Every part
As cold as ice,
Learn a lesson
On your throne,
No possecion
Will suffice,
When you leave
And you are gone,
No one misses
You at dawn,
One day you'll breathe
And see what's true,
And what evil can't give you

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece after visiting the Museum of Tolerence in LA. Thinking about the evils of the Holocaust and those who just stood there watching millions die this was a powerful experience, and I wrote this poem when I got home. I hope the people who read this will choose tolerance instead of intolerance and evil.
