Burning, brewing, consuming
My heart
Turning all emotions into anger
All thoughts clouded with rage
Just at the simple idea
That ruined thousands
That killed millions
That injured many
And left little
My impetus
For building a new world
Where all are aware
And intelligent
None are feared
All are loved
And there are no tears
The only thing shed
Is light
But not a spot
Of red

This is also another reaction of mine in the form of a poem to the book Night, by Elie Wiesel.
