Silence

September 13, 2008
By Jessica Christiansen, Weston, WI

I remember
Never shall I forget that night
Everyone outside
We looked at the flames in the darkness
They'll never wake again
Forward march
Faster faster
My heart was bursting
God is testing us
Left right! Left right!
The bell had just rung
Don't think. Don't stop. Run!
The iron gate closed behind us
This was the end
Night was falling
Where is God? Where is he?
Silence again.

This was written after learning more about the time period of the holocaust. We listened and read about holocaust victims in class.
