A mother hides her baby young
Behind bars is where they will be next
Children dying
Dead mothers' faces stained ruddy red from crying
Eat my child, a mother says
Fill up as much as you can
God oh God please let us live
Have faith, my child, don't listen to their mockery
I have to keep going, I mustn't leave my heart and soul
Joined in this God-forsaken place
Kill me, kill me, if you wish, but leave my
Love to remember their now abandoned bliss
Misery creeps inside of me turning and twisting
Never will I forgive myself for
Opening the door
People do not come out of those chambers of death
Quiet, my love, pretend this is all just a nightmare
Rummage for old, lost dreams
Stay away from the light is my most repetitive thought
Tall, large black walls close my spirit in
Inseparable is where I shall forever stand with my child, hand in hand
Vandalism to our home, which remains a distant memory
What fate is this for my babe
X-ray machines are what those inhuman soldiers are, they see right through us
Yellow sparkles in the sky that we will never see with free eyes
Zebra strips cover their long forgotten faces

How very moving...The imagery that comes to mind is a concentration camp.

Beautiful...quite beautiful...I see you've worked hard to create imagery?
