Elie Wiesel put it best: “None of us is in a position to eliminate war, but it is our obligation to denounce it and expose it in all its hideousness… Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”


The sailor watched through dark and stormy night.
Turning his boat, he rides towards the girl.
He sees her through the glimmering light.
Her smile illuminated like a pearl.
The storm rocks his boat, and he fights back.
Overboard, he's in a depth of despair.
He swims, it's a losing match for his tack.
Sunken ship;the boat is beyond repair.
Silent and swift, she guides him to shore.
Her eyes speak more than dozen words spoken.
Looks of longing, he wants to see her more.
With her tender touch,his spell is broken.

With eyes wide, he saw now what was a dream.
She swims towards the moonlight with a gleam.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

It's true what they say. "Poems are short stories that don't need complete sentances to be good." Great job! five stars!
