Holocaust Horrors

The mistakes we have made are never forgotten

The memory of the bodies, lifeless and rotten

The scenes of gore make their impact

To remember the inhumanities we must go back

 

The mug shots of those who committed no crime

But only refused to openly lie

About whom they loved, their God and Lord

The price was their lives.

This, they certainly could not afford

 

Not only were their lives the ones at stake

Mom, dad, sister and baby

Proclamation of faith equaled suicide daily

 

Not only proclamation of faith

Homosexuality, prostitution, and disabilities

For crimes such as these cost all freedoms and liberties

 

Enslaved for individuality

We say it’s insanity

A group of people being so cruel

But look at us now, we look the fool.

Are we not enslaving the individual?

Are we not condemning each other?

Acceptance is key

This is what we have been taught by our humanity’s history
