Blood Stained Walls

June 13, 2010
Looking in the buildings
Looking for any left
Walking quietly, listening
Pressing our stethoscopes against the wall
Listening for terrified heart beats
Heart beats that wonder if they will live or die
Heart beats that wonder if their family members are alive
Heart beats that wonder if it gets any worse
Heart beats that wonder if they will be found
Some think we are gone
Some come out of hiding
Boom, boom, boom
We flip over a bed to find one hiding there
Boom, boom, boom
We see a family hidden in a closet
Boom, boom, boom
We hear heart beats probably hiding under beds upstairs
Boom, boom, boom
We finished clearing the building
We walk by the blood stained walls, floors, and furniture
Not affected by the lives we just took
We bring the ones who did not hide
But followed the orders they were given
We take them to concentration camps
We kill those who have no skills
We kill those who are sick
We kill them just for our entertainment
We treat them worse than animals
But we do not care
After all...
They are Jewish

What is heartbreaking is that this happened at all.  May we all work to make this world a better place for all.
