May 2020 Poem: A Collection of Poems About a Child in the Holocaust

KILLED
Destroyed unseen Chaos
Taken away from Father
Slipping Silently

SHAKEN NEWBORN
Confused Young Pale
I obeyed Cruel Broken Fists
True in Memory

ALARMED TERRIFIED
Approaching the Dark
Lost Shuddering in Mid-Night
Collapsed protection

FINISHED JOURNEY
Nervous Situation
Startled Failed Feeling a Longing
Weakened Citizen

QUIET CRIES
Locked within Annex
In Dangerous Violence
No crying released
