You can’t see the people that you surround
You block out each and every sound
The shouting, becomes and echo in your
head
You don’t seem to notice the people that lie.
Dead
All you can do is stare
At the bold letters that you see ahead
Auschwitz.
Stripped of your clothes
And freedom of speech
Your hair is shaved
Along with your rights
Possesions are stolen
And you can’t even fight
You work hard each day
Without any pay
Starved and scammed
You suffer
Only to live
In a world with a religion of hate

I took a class on the holocaust just for kicks, and I have to say, just hearing the survivors stories WILL give you nightmares. And you'll cry, listening how they struggled watching everyone around them die. It's a good piece that reminded me of that feeling, keep on keeping on. :)

It is better to write for yourself and have no audience than write for your audience and have no self.
