Horrors of the Holocaust

February 13, 2012
Our puzzled world was brutally breaking,
Our bodies, our spirits cruelly mauled.
Though bony beings prevailed, hearts aching,
Few souls survived the wretched Buchenwald.

Fraught with the worry of a horrid fate,
In this gruesome place we paid a vast toll.
While God tested the strength of our faith,
The outside world appeared unscathed and whole.

Oh, how I yearned for my beloved freedom!
My life bounded by relentless constraint.
As I pined for merciful Death to come,
Despair loomed around me, leaving its taint.

But then one day, I saw a flag and knew,
Freedom was coming in red, white, and blue.
