When I read about the Holocaust
See a child weep, she's lost
Hear a bully
Shouting threats
Then read in the paper
Of his father's arrest

Read a poem
Wet with fear
See cruelty there
Feel it right here

So many things make my heart shake
What happens when one day
With a shudder
It breaks?

I wrote this after reading Night, by Elie Wiesel, but, clearly,the inspiration was life in general.
