Favorite Quote:
\"The thing is- fear can\'t hurt you any more than a dream\" - Lord of the Flies

The Jews gathered round, smothered in frowns
The Nazi's came together, some hoping this would last forever
The early spring light whispered to the kids to stay safe
The parents held onto their loved ones and prayed for a better tomorrow
The wind swept through the hairs of the unfortunate
One of the Nazi’s raised their gun and shot up into the billowy, oddly happy clouds
The Jews were shaking, in their minds it was as if the world was quaking
Oh the unfairness of it all, agonized the mother of the quivering child

I wrote this poem for my English class when I was in the 8th grade. My English teacher loved it so I thought I'd share!
